Sounds fishy -

Recommended Posts

Seems the EU has warned the UK that it will run short of fish in the event of a "no deal" Brexit - so our staple fish and chips will be off the menu !    Although we'll get our own fishing areas back, they claim we won't have enough trawlers to maintain current levels of supply.   A red herring or not ?

Well the eu can store all the excess fish they catch in the defunct wine lakes.🤭

What I find amazing about this is:  the EU insisted on reduced quotas,  then sent their fishing fleets into UK waters, making a load of UK trawlers redundant. Now, they're basically saying, still allow EU trawlers into UK waters (cos you haven't got enough), then we'll sell you the fish (plus a tariff) !    Seems the simple answer would be to enlarge OUR fishing fleet and create indigenous employment.

All very well expanding the fishing fleet if you have the experienced crew to man the boats and it takes a certain type of person to do that in all weather conditions.

Not something i can see many of the youth of today wanting to take up.
