German Fishing director states, EU won’t buy fish from Britain, unless we have free access to your fish rich waters.

A director of a German fishing firm has come out stating “We demand that the British only export their fish to the EU if European fishermen continue to have access to British waters” as they had before Brexit.

Why the EU want to continue fishing in Britains waters after Brexit.

This demand comes after Uwe Richter, director of Euro Baltic Fish Processing Company in Sassnit went on to say, hundreds of jobs will be lost in the fishing industry if they do not have the same unrestricted access into UK fish-rich waters. He went on to say that EU member states will not buy fish caught by a British boat unless they (Germany) can have unfettered access to the UK’s waters.

While these threats will anger the British, it seems that Michel Barnier has collapsed their fisheries redlines allowing the UK to break free from the common fisheries policy.

In an interview with German daily newspaper Die Tageszeitung, Mr Richter said: “We demand that the British only export their fish to the EU if European fishermen continue to have access to British waters.
“I think many British fishermen have now understood that.”

When asked for an opinion on whether a deal could be struck between the two sides, Mr Richter said: “After the unsuccessful rounds of negotiations, I’m rather pessimistic.
“A ‘hard Brexit’ without an agreement is becoming more and more likely every day.
“But making a prediction is not possible.
“It’s like looking into a crystal ball.”

Mr Richter then gave his reaction to the recent compromise from Barnier.
Richter said “I don’t know what’s behind it.
“The final compromise cannot be read from this.”

Mr Richter then went on to elaborate about potential job losses: “Several hundred jobs are likely to be lost.
“There are currently seven vessels for deep-sea fishing in Germany that are in use worldwide and employ a total of around 450 men in the shipping companies.
“Four of these ships are currently mainly in British waters.”

  1. Oh well never mind Fritz, the EU will have to starve then. Fritz and the rest of them need to understand, the UK waters are UK waters, not Frog waters, not Kraut waters, not EU waters, they belong to us, a sovereign nation and what we say is what goes. We have had 45 years of being dictated too by the Frogs and the Krauts, now is the time for them to get the message loud and very clear, absolutely no more, we are not a rule taker or a demand taker, we are a rule giver and a demand giver. What is more, the law is on our side. The Frogs and their pure greed have raped their own waters now they want to turn their attention to ours, we are not going to allow that to happen. As far as I am concerned, the UK must ban all EU fishing fleets from UK waters with immediate effect. Any of them coming into our waters illegally will be arrested, the skippers fined and put in prison for 5 years and their boats scrapped. Anything aboard these vessels worth salvaging, then it is salvaged and sold to our fleets as cheap as possible. Absolutely no compensation payable to any foreign vessel.
