Fishing: the ultimate question

These two letters urge UK abandonment of the Common Fisheries Policy. David Guild writes:
The only reform that would protect the Scottish fishing fleet and also save the fish stocks would be - in my view - the abandonment of CFP and the repatriation of the appropriate sea areas back to the littoral powers.
And according to Stewart Whyte:
We must leave the Common Fisheries Policy. It has led us to ruin; it is morally corrupt and its credibility is shot to pieces.
Mr Whyte is a prospective Conservative candidate for the Scottish parliament. The question is Mr Stewart: if we could only get out of the Common Fisheries Policy by leaving the EU, which would you chose?
