Something fishy... #Brexit #Scotland #Fishing #Fisheries

(From The National)
"In a letter to Bertie Armstrong, chief executive of the Scottish Fishermen’s Federation, Leadsom said the UK Government would try to “disapply” the most unpopular and unworkable elements of the EU CFP, but had to admit that some of the policy would still apply to the UK.
Leadsom wrote: “No decision has yet been made on the extent to which the EU legislation governing the Common Fisheries Policy will be incorporated into domestic law.
“The Government will continue to champion sustainable fisheries and we are committed to ongoing cooperation with other countries over the management of shared stocks and ending discards.”" 
My conclusions on fisheries and our experience in Galicia: 
A conservative government cannot be expected to defend the interests of fishermen. Fishing for them is never going to be a priority, but a business for a few.
