Brexit was supposed to lay waste to the U.K. fishing industry AU.The second link states "Brixham’s fish market is currently enjoying a boom in business, with fish landed in ports hundreds of miles away being brought by road to be sold at the online auctions on the quayside.
But, said Mr Spreckley: “Environmentally the fish quay proposal is ridiculous. This will just lead to more fish being trucked in from all over the country to be sold on the market at Brixham, because Brixham fish has a premium value"
I think it just means people are bringing fish from the EU into Britain to sell more expensively.
I thought Brexit was supposed to do the opposite and the problem was french, spanish, and the rest trawlers on 'our' fishing grounds? Or is it because they can now forget sensible quotas and scrape the lot out. Dunno, takes me all day to get a few bream!!!Brexit was supposed to lay waste to the U.K. fishing industry AU.
Yet within months of us leaving Brixham is experiencing a boom and planning an expansion which could involve 150 more jobs.
BJ deserves to be confronted with the lack of a FTA with the US, but let’s not overstate it’s importance. Trade between the two is still massive.Please don't tell today's Daily Express but it looks like this great UK-US trade deal won't be happening anytime soon or ever.
