The UK sends 81% of its mackerel, and 93% of its herring abroad. Mostly to Norway and the Netherlands.
The UK only catches a tiny quantity of the cod it consumes: only 5%.
The rest comes from overseas.
But UK wd lose an important export market for their no.1 and no.2 catches.
eg. 30% of UK mackerel and 34% of UK herring goes to NL.
...and EU consumers should prepare to pay more for fish.
Or we need an EU-UK fisheries agreement that covers both access to waters and market access.
Very fishy, indeed.
