“We cannot agree with arrangements that are manifestly unbalanced and contrary to the interests of the united kingdom fishing industry.”Under the Common Fisheries Policy that is existing, EU boats capture compared to their counterparts grab from European waters, catch about five times the worth of fish.
A white paper on “sustainable fisheries for future generations” that was been printed in 2018 explains the UK’s current quota share doesn’t reflect fish present in UK waters. European sailors currently have 90 percent of haddock caught compared to 10 percent handed to British boats. Of that grab, 51 percent of the haddock stocks have been judged to reside within the UK’s EEZ, according to the Government newspaper.
