The MP for Lowestoft has told MPs that Brexit is a "once in a lifetime opportunity to rejuvenate the East Anglian fishing industry".
Peter Aldous told the annual fishing debate in Parliament that leaving the EU presented "a great opportunity to reset the framework in which this great industry operates".
Mr Aldous said that under the current rules the region, and particularly Lowestoft, derives very little economic benefit from the fish stocks off its shores.
He called for local boats to have "fair and equitable" access to the North Sea with a more generous quota for inshore fishing boats, which make up most the East Anglian fleet since the decline of the trawling industry.
"The local infrastructure also needs supporting with safe berths, better landing points and modern markets with upgraded freezer facilities," he said.
