The impact of Brexit on fishing is to be examined by the Northern Ireland Affairs Committee of MPs.

The industry is largely regulated by the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP).

As well as leaving the CFP, the UK Government has announced its withdrawal from the London Fisheries Convention, which established fishing rights in coastal waters of Western Europe.

The inquiry will look at the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead for the sector.

It will consider which parts of EU fisheries policy should be replicated when the UK Government develops an independent policy as well as strategies to improve.
