Briefing Paper | Fishing in Deep Waters | Michael Gasiorek and Suzannah Walmsley
In this latest Briefing Paper for UKTPO, Michael Gasiorek and Suzannah Walmsley, Fisheries and Aquaculture Business Development Manager at leading UK marine environmental consultancy ABPmer, provide an empirical assessment of the possible impact of Brexit on the UK’s fishing industry.
Leaving the EU will involve some possible combination of changes in tariffs, non-tariff measures, and also the amount of fish quotas that can be caught by the UK and the EU.
The Briefing Paper details the policy environment, and the policy considerations facing the UK government in the Brexit negotiations. As the nature of the UK’s future trade relations with the EU are still uncertain, this paper explores several simulations which aim, broadly speaking, to capture the key variants of Brexit that appear to be under discussion.
