Documentary report on the future of the fishing industry in the North of Scotland. New EEC regulations have cut some fishermen's quotas by more than half for cod and haddock, because North Sea stock is dangerously low. In Shetland many of the boats are not yet paid for and so the reduction in quotas may mean ruin to the fishermen.
