Other Media | FiskerForum: Door could close on UK distant waters fishing

Wednesday, October 28, 2020

The UK’s distant waters fleet stands to be left out in the cold from the end of this year, and could be cut off from North Atlantic fishing grounds if the UK government does not act quickly to secure access.

As things stand, the only UK fishing company operating in these distant waters, the Hull-based UK Fisheries with its two fishing vessels, currently has no fishing opportunities on its traditional distant waters from 1st of January next year.

‘If we lose our distant waters fishing industry, the irony of the government’s aspiration to become a proudly independent coastal state will not be lost voters of the ‘red wall’ in the north-east of England,’ commented Jane Sandell of UK Fisheries.
