No Solution Yet for Fishermen in Brexit Negotiations

The Brexit negotiators of the EU and the United Kingdom have not yet found a solution for future fisheries in British waters. “We are not there yet.


There is still a lot more work to do,” said a spokesman for the European Commission.

In Brussels, Michel Barnier on behalf of the EU and his British counterpart David Frost are negotiating “intensively” on a trade agreement after 31 December.

Then the transition period in which the British still follow the EU rules will end, even though they are no longer a member of the European Union since 1 February.

Fishing is one of the hurdles that have yet to be overcome to avoid a no-deal scenario. Other points of contention include state aid to British companies and the supervision of agreements.
