The Govt says that they have done a fantastic brexit deal for fishermen. So why do they need to compensate them?

It's a clear admission that Brexit has backfired.

We told you it was a bad idea. You can't keep saying it's teething troubles and bailing people out forever. Sooner or later we'll discretely re-join the SM & CU but call it something else.

Brexit is only good for the spivs & speculators in the den of thieves they call the "City".

For everyone else it is an unmitigated economic disaster whose full effects we wont really know for 5-10 years.

Scotland has a choice.

I would really like to hear from fishermen themselves about this- how they voted and how it is turning out. Whether they were attracted by a better share of the quota. Whether they appreciated that benefit might be lost by losing good access to their markets. Probably needs a bit more time to tell the full story but it would make an interesting documentary
106
20/01/2021 11:37:38 7 10

Surely how they voted is irrelevant? Problem here is that Brexit and its customs checks make exporting fresh fish virtually impossible. The Brexit 'deal' could and should have included customs union membership. What we have is government's choice - 2016 Ref did not spell out leaving customs union, so there was no mandate for what we've now got. There will be many more cases like this to come.

Eire are by-passing englands ports and ferrying direct to EU.
Even if Scotland put on Ferries to bypass the red tape, the Brexit problem remains being shackled to Uk, this would stymie any benefits.
But in the long term its something Scotland must do.
Currently some of Scotlands deep sea Trawlers are landing catches in EU, bypassing UK markets.
They need to survive.

I love seafood. If the Scottish fisherman are unable to sell to Europe I am looking forward to more produce being available locally at reduced prices. Fish is horrendously expensive nowadays,
As a lad I used to watch the sprat boats unloading their catch. Often there were huge cod contained within the catch. These were simply thrown back into the sea as no one ate cod in Scotland. Changed days!

You do realise its teh middle and end man that adds the costs onto fish, as for changed days, haddock is still the preferred fish in Scotland as cod is tasteless, if you want cheaper fish and shellfish, get off your backside and go down to your nearest working pier when boats are landing, and you would be surprised at how much fish you would get offering to buy at the same price as processors do

Yes, because the greedy fishermen have been and want to continue selling our High Quality fish and shellfish to the EU countries at the higher prices they're prepared to pay. Same as Welsh Lamb. They've had 3 decades of boom at our expense.

Fishermen's federation told them to vote for Brexit.

Fishermen voted for Brexit.

They knew the consequences. They were told that cutting off your major customers wasn't a good idea.

They get what they deserve and no public funds should be wasted on them when other businesses opposed to Brexit can't get any.
