Fishing quota: Big producers lose reallocation battle
10 July 2013 Last updated at 14:11 BST
The High Court has ruled in favour of redistributing some fishing rights from big producers to small-scale fishermen.
The UK Association of Fish Producer Organisations had challenged a decision to reallocate unused quota, essentially a licence to fish, worth more than £1m.
It argued the move was unlawful under both EU and domestic law, but the judge ruled there was no discrimination.
