    Red Lines or Blindfold Brexit?

    http://fiskerforum.dk/en/news/b/red-...indfold-brexit

    UK prime minister Theresa May was adamant in Parliament that Britain's fishing industry is not about the be traded off, while not everyone is convinced following the political declaration made in Parliament.

    ‘The fisheries agreement isn't something we will be trading off against any other priorities,’ Theresa May pledged in Parliament.

    Responding to the Brexit political declaration, SFF chief executive Bertie Armstrong commented that this gives the UK ‘the power to assert its position as an independent Coastal State with full, unfettered sovereignty over our waters and natural resources.’

    ‘However we know that several EU nations will not give up their attempts to link access with trade in order to retain absolute rights to fish around our coastline,’ he said.

    ‘So we will continue to seek assurances from the UK Government that it will remain steadfast and will not rest until the future arrangements are signed, sealed and delivered and we secure that critical control over access to our waters and who catches what stocks, where and when.’

    While Theresa May made a firm declaration, SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon commented that ‘it adds up to a blindfold Brexit.’

    ‘Just read Political Declaration. Lots of unicorns taking the place of facts about the future relationship. Fair play to the EU for pushing it as far as possible,’ she wrote, commenting that if a wider trade negotiation is not agreed by July 2020, neither will fishing agreement, bringing with it the possibility of two-year transition.

    ‘Looks to me like fishing will be a bargaining chip in wider trade negotiation (‘within the context of the overall economic partnership’). UKG was trying to get commitment to annual agreements on access - looks like they failed,’ Nicola Sturgeon said.

    ‘Another Tory sell out of fishing on the cards.’

    EU Fisheries Alliance

    A spokesman for the EU Fisheries Alliance of fishing associations in nine European countries expected to be most affected by the loss of access to UK waters commented that EUFA fully supports the efforts of Michel Barnier and Sabine Weyand.

    ‘A mutually beneficial post-Brexit framework for fisheries needs to ensure mutual access to waters, markets and fisheries resources,’ EUFA’s spokesman said.

    Irish fisheries sector encouraged by UK-EU declaration

    The Chief Executive of the Killybegs Fishermen’s Organisation has welcomed the latest Brexit declaration as having achieved specific acknowledgment and reference to the crucial issue of the linkage between access and quotas to the wider trade issue.

    ‘I have always maintained that the key to a successful fisheries outcome is linking access and quota share to the wider trade negotiations,’ said KFO CEO, Seán O’Donoghue, responding to the 36-page draft text, which is part of a package alongside the legal treaty on Britain's withdrawal from the EU.

    He said that Paragraph 75 of the text states: “Within the context of the overall economic partnership the Parties should establish a new fisheries agreement on, inter alia, access to waters and quota shares.”

    He added that a new EU-UK agreement on fisheries would form part of the overall new relationship between the two. The sides aim to "conclude and ratify their new fisheries agreement by 1 July 2020."

    Building on the momentum of last week’s publication of the draft withdrawal agreement and outline political declaration, the Irish fishing industry is currently relatively well-placed to avoid a disastrous hard Brexit.

    ‘While we are quite encouraged by the documents we have seen to date, I said last week that strong foundations have now been laid, we cannot afford to take our eye off the ball. We’ve begun well but we’re not even at half-time yet. We know only too well from experience that fisheries negotiations are multi-faceted and highly complex and much remains to be agreed,’ Seán O’Donoghue said.

    ‘We firmly believe that the future framework for fisheries, after the transition period, needs to maintain the current levels of reciprocal access to waters and markets, as well as sound science-based fisheries management. The text presented to date takes the first steps to deliver on this and we look forward to productive negotiations in the near future.’

    He commented that Ireland’s two biggest fisheries, mackerel (60%) and nephrops (40%) (or prawns) are hugely dependent on access to UK waters with the overall dependency for all stocks of over 30%.

    ‘Maintaining reciprocal access to waters and resources need to be at the heart of the post-Brexit relationship in fisheries given the historic ties and inextricable links between our countries and industries,’ Seán O’Donoghue stated.

    He paid tribute to the effectiveness of the united approach taken by the European Fisheries Alliance (EUFA) which was established less than two months after the British vote to protect the interests of fleets from national organisations in Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain and Sweden.

    He acknowledged that in terms of fisheries, these high-stakes negotiations have been very efficiently managed by the Irish Government to date, particularly the Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, Tánaiste Simon Coveney and Minister Michael Creed in tandem with EU Chief Negotiator, Michel Barnier and their respective officials.
