Others say the limits on what can be caught have been vital to protect dwindling fish stocks.

Malcolm Shaw reports now from Hastings, where fishing has been a way of life for over 1000 years.

Hastings Pier officially re-opens

But today's official gala - ahead of tonight's concert by Madness - shows Hastings Pier is back in business. Charlotte Wilkins has been speaking to Beatrice Rapley, Learning and Education Manager; Simon Opie, Chief Executive of Hastings Pier Charity and Sid Saunders, a resident of Hastings.
