Fisheries Minister Richard Benyon has told MPs the deal reached on the EU's Commons Fisheries Policy is "good for the health of the seas and the UK fishing industry".
Negotiations to agree fishing quotas across the EU concluded in December 2012.
Fishing days for UK trawlers will be the same this year as last, after automatic reductions were dropped, and catch quotas were increased for several kinds of fish.
In a statement to the Commons on 8 January 2013, Mr Benyon hailed the UK negotiating team for successfully fighting huge cuts to quotas across a number of fish stocks.
Labour's shadow environment minister Tom Harris branded the annual process of negotiations "undignified and chaotic" and said the UK fishing industry deserved better.
Mr Benyon agreed the process was "absurd and ridiculous" but said he was generally pleased with the outcome.
