MARE announced that it has prepared two contingency proposals for
legislation to help mitigate impact of "no-deal" Brexit on EU fisheries.
The first is to allow fishermen and operators from EU Members States
to receive compensation under the European Maritime and Fisheries
Fund for the temporary cessation of fishing activities. This will
help off-set some of the impact of a sudden closure of UK waters to
EU fishing vessels in a no-deal scenario. The second will amend the
Regulation on the Sustainable Management of the External Fleets, which
will allow the EU to grant UK vessels access to EU waters until the
end of 2019, on the condition that EU vessels are also granted reciprocal
access to UK waters. The proposal also provides for a simplified procedure
to authorise UK vessels to fish in EU waters and EU vessels to fish
in UK waters - should the UK grant that access. The proposal is limited
to 2019 and is based on the agreement in the Agriculture and Fisheries
Council of 17 and 18 December 2018 on the fishing opportunities for
2019. The Commission points out that the proposals will not mitigate
the overall impact of a "no-deal" scenario, nor do they in any way
replicate the full benefits to UK of EU membership or the terms of
any transition period, as provided for in the Withdrawal Agreement.
