Significant increases in UK quotas for fish including North Sea cod have been agreed by ministers.
Fisheries minister George Eustice welcomed the deal as a "great result" for UK fishermen following European Union negotiations in Brussels.
Quotas for North Sea cod and haddock have been increased by 15% and 47% respectively on 2015 levels, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) said.
Maximum limits on English Channel plaice have been doubled and increased by 20% for Celtic Sea hake and 15% for sole in the Western Channel.
Defra said it had negotiated to keep the number of days fishermen could spend at sea to this year's levels, while also accepting quota cuts of 55% in sole from the Irish Sea and 9% in plaice from the Bristol Channel. The limits for 2016 were agreed at the annual EU Fisheries and Agriculture Council and Defra said decisions took account of scientific advice, sustainability goals and a drive to reduce discards.
