Brexit fishing threat - EUbusiness Week newsletter 793
EUbusiness Week 793 top stories: Brussels supports end to Greek deficit procedure; Tusk cements EU-Ukraine partnership, urges unity; Finance ministers approve plan for bad loans; Experts propose simpler access to EU funds; Brexit threatens UK flights to EU 27, says Ryanair boss; Muskrat, alligator weed added to EU alien species list
The first example of Britain 'taking back control' and 'getting back our
waters' has been its withdrawal from the London Fisheries Convention.
Responding to this crude negotiating position, MEPs in committee this week backed plans to tackle overfishing through multi-annual fishing quotas in the North Sea - fishing grounds set to become bargaining chips in the Brexit talks. The goals and ambitions of the EU's fisheries policy should be defended. Unilateral withdrawal from agreements is not defensible, and non-cooperation with the UK's neighbours over shared fish stocks is not a workable policy.
