    Making Labour the party of fishing

    http://fiskerforum.dk/en/news/b/maki...rty-of-fishing

    Two UK Labour MPs with fishing industry constituencies are making a concerted effort to make Labour the party of fishing. Luke Pollard is MP for Plymouth Sutton and Devonport and Melanie Onn is MP for Great Grimsby.

    According to Luke Polland and Melanie Onn, there are few industries more closely associated with Brexit than fishing. The Battle of the Thames, when fishing boats clashed outside parliament, will endure as one of the more curious images of the referendum campaign. Many fishing communities were vocally pro-Brexit and rightly want a good deal.

    ‘As Britain leaves the European Union our fishing agreements will be redrawn and, for the first time in 40 years – since we joined the London Convention and signed up for the common fisheries policy – Brexit will reset the regulatory environment for this vital sector. Fishing communities are frequently Labour communities and as we motor towards the next election they need to be Labour-voting even more than now,’ they say.

    ‘Many of our top 75 target seats are coastal communities and fishing provides jobs and connections with a sense of identity that Labour needs to protect and promote.’

    They comment that the fishing industry has always brought huge value to Labour communities and this historic link between coastal communities and the party needs to be strengthened.

    ‘It is time fishing had an official forum for debate and a strong voice within the Labour Party. That’s why today we will launch Labour Friends of Fishing – a new voice for fishing within the Labour movement.’

    Labour Friends of Fishing, modelled closely on the successful Labour Friends of the Forces which brought together volunteers, veterans, elected officers and the shadow defence team in a forum, has been launched at the House of Commons with speakers including Sue Hayman, shadow environment secretary, and Holly Lynch, shadow fisheries minister.

    ‘Our vision is to create something similar for fishing. Every coastal community in the country has had, or continues to have, a link to fishing while fish and shellfish remain firm favourites on menus across the land,’ Melanie Onn and Luke Pollard state.

    ‘Britain has much to gain from a good deal for fishing. But we also have much to lose from a bad deal. As we approach the traditional annual fishing debate in the Commons, and look ahead to the publication of the fishing bill by the government, the time is right for the industry to have a clear and strong voice in our party.’

    ‘We need to have sustainable fishing that protect the environment, fish stocks and fishing jobs across the country. Britain’s fishing fleet is the second-largest in the EU in terms of capacity and the seventh-largest in vessel numbers – it’s no secret that many EU countries catch a large proportion of their fish in our waters. Brexit could well change this and it’s important that changes are shaped by a distinctive Labour argument.’

    The intention is that Labour Friends of Fishing will create a space for coastal communities and the fishing industry to be heard, which they expect will a link between the industry and Labour’s shadow environment team.

    ‘It is crucial that Labour Friends of Fishing acts as a voice for the entire breadth of the industry from trawler to table. That means incorporating all areas of the sector from fish farming to processing, manufacturing and trading. There are many more jobs related to fishing onshore than at sea and all of those need a strong and resolute voice within the fishing debate and the Labour Party,’ Luke Pollard and Melanie Onn said prior to the launch of Labour Friends of Fishing.

    ‘Let the message go out loud and clear: the new party of fishing is Labour, protecting the environment and backing fishing jobs sustainably.’

    Norway’s post-Brexit North Sea vision

    http://fiskerforum.dk/en/news/b/norw...rth-sea-vision

    An outline of possible post-Brexit management for North Sea fisheries was outlined at the recent Norway-EU negotiations in Bergen, with the Norwegian delegation presenting a picture of how things will work with the UK as an independent coastal state.

    The Norwegian delegation’s ‘Future Framework’ presentation makes it plain that Norway is thinking ahead to what shape the new arrangements will take, with the Norwegian vision consisting of three main elements; firstly relevant modern management principles, and the twin goals of increasing long-term total out-take and utilisation of all fish; ‘and all of the fish taken out of the sea.’

    Norway recognises that with the UK no longer part of the CFP, there will be a need for new legal and institutional structures. To this end Norway proposes a joint EU, Norway, UK Fisheries Commission, responsible for managing the joint stocks in the North Sea. The North Sea Fisheries Commission would be responsible for an annual agreed record.

    It would also make decisions on total allowable catches for shared stocks; and decisions on what stocks to include in the agreement.

    Norway made the point that quota exchanges are the glue that holds the agreement together and these could be included as (bilateral) annexes to the annual agreement. Permanent sub-groups could work on areas such as monitoring control and enforcement, technical regulation and the development of management plans.

    According to the Norwegian thinking, a new framework agreement would define the geographical scope of the Agreement, outline the main principles for co-operation and shape the institutional framework for negotiations.

    The NFFO reports that there is question mark over the appropriate legal status of the Agreement. This could take the form of a legally binding document according to the internal procedures of the parties, or a less formal type of agreement.

    Crucially, such an Agreement would also cover the important areas of future sharing of the stocks (which are currently not codified) and access arrangements.

    These could be included in the form of bilateral annexes to the framework agreement, or agreed record, or could take a trilateral form. The EU/Norway agreement in 1979, pioneered zonal attachment as the basis for establish the resources in each exclusive economic zone and therefore the basis of national quota shares.

    According to the NFFO representatives at the meeting, this comes as a brief but highly significant intervention at a crucial juncture.

    ‘It acknowledges, as we do, the biological, geographical and legal realities that shared stocks must be managed cooperatively and managed well, if we are to optimise the benefits,’ an NFFO spokesman said.

    ‘This therefore a welcome and timely intervention which may shape the way our North Sea fisheries are managed for years to come. It will also be important to begin thinking about similar but not necessarily identical arrangements for our fisheries in Western waters.’
