Welsh fish for Wales.
I have received well over a thousand letters expressing concern about the destruction of UK stocks as a result of over-fishing by EU vessels. There are almost 500 boats working in Welsh waters, the majority of which land fish in Spain.
The carving up of oceans between 27 member states, landlocked or otherwise, has left our waters dredged of fish. In fact 75% of the Welsh coastline has some sort of protected status.
Modern fishing methods, alongside opening up UK waters to all EU members, mean our waters are purged by a multitude of foreign vessels.
Because the UK handed regulation of the industry to the EU decades ago, it's now controlled by the unelected European Commission, with little even MEPs can do.
People from across the political spectrum including charities such as the World Wide Fund for Nature say the new policy brushes issues under the carpet.
The reality is fisheries policy simply cannot work. The UK should control and fish her own waters, as should other member states protect and profit from theirs. This will return pounds 2.5bn a year to the UK economy and allow us to establish moveable "no take zones" allowing fish to spawn and stocks to recover.
We could also ban the most damaging forms of industrial trawling.
