The future of Scotland's fishing towns

Skippers in parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland and Cornwall have already exhausted their fishing quotas for the year, and will be without a job until the 2010 quotas in January. A group of fisherman's wives, the Cod Crusaders, says that EU rules are pushing the next generation out of the industry and are meeting the Scottish Fisheries Minister to discuss how to improve the industry. Reporter Tamasin Ford went to Fraserburgh, on the North East coast of Scotland, to speak to fishermen and their wives.
