Without action, Brexit risks creating as many ‘losers’ as ‘winners’ across the diverse UK fishing fleet
04 May 2018
Brexit is being presented as a beacon of hope for fishers. Many in coastal communities are looking to Brexit to lift them out of the economic hardship in which they feel trapped. But modelling from the New Economics Foundation has shown that without action, Brexit risks creating as many ‘losers’ as ‘winners’ across the diverse UK fishing fleet.
The Fisheries Bill alone won’t solve all the issues, but it is an opportunity to improve the way that UK fisheries management is enshrined in law – correcting long-standing failings that have contributed to a sense of grievance in fishing communities. This report sets out 4 key priorities for the bill:
Fair, sustainable fishing
Fisheries & farming
