    Brexit impact for UK fishing waters: mass EU trespass, says leaked document

    Chairman Olivier Lepretre said: “If there is a hard Brexit, I can assure you that not a single kilo of seafood or fish from Britain will get into France.

    The consequences for the British fishing industry on Day 1 of Brexit have been given ample coverage in the UK media following a government document allegedly leaked on purpose. According to the document, clashes would place immediate strain on maritime agencies, with nearly 300 foreign boats fishing illegally on day one of Brexit.
