Members of the European Parliament have backed the biggest reform plan in the history of the EU's fisheries policy, in a bid to restore fish stocks.
Measures approved in a vote in Strasbourg include banning within three years the current practice of dumping dead fish back in the sea - a consequence of current Common Fisheries Policy rules.
Today's deal also offers more control over managing the CFP to regional fishing organisations - although some UK politicians have been demanding nothing less than the scrapping of the CFP altogether and the "repatriation" of fisheries policy.
The deal is expected to be confirmed by the end of June.
