Creel fishermen are calling for a change in the way fisheries are managed along the west coast of Scotland. They have put a case to the Scottish government for trawlers to be banned from inshore waters and say the move would create 700 new jobs and 450 new boats.

The Scottish Fishermen’s Federation, which represents the inshore trawlers, says that would damage their fleet and does not make economic sense.

BBC Scotland’s rural affairs correspondent Kevin Keane reports.
