The EU’s Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) for those just arrived from Mars is a disaster and has been horrendous for the environment. We could join the Regional Fisheries Management Organisation in our own right instead of being represented (not) by the EU. They love fish on the continent and we could sell it to them at a profit even if they did put a tariff on it, which they won’t because we currently import shed loads more food from them than we sell to them.
I’m sure we could do better for the fishermen and the fish and the sea bed. “Thou shalt have a fishy on a little dishy, when the boat comes in”.
We have government departments, the Marine Conservation Society, loads of really bright young marine biologists and the fishermen themselves all ready and capable of managing our fishing sustainably. It’s not sunk yet….
