UNITED KINGDOM
Wednesday, August 16, 2017
 

With the UK leaving the EU and withdrawing from the London Fisheries Convention, the fishing industry could undergo drastic changes. The sector includes 24 fish producer organisations (POs), which are membership organisations made up of fishermen.

The UK will also be leaving the EU’s Common Fishery Policy, a set of rules through which European fishing fleet and fish stock are managed.

Recently reformed in 2014, the CFP gives all European fishing fleets equal access to EU waters and fishing grounds with the aim of creating fair competition. The current policy stipulates that between 2015 and 2020 catch limits should be set that are sustainable and maintain fish stocks in the long term.
