We were supposed to have cast off the shackles of EU rules around farming and fishing. Brexit was sold as a ‘sea of opportunity’. And yet, tonnes of British meat have been left rotting at European ports, while Scottish fishers have had to make a 72-hour round trip to land their catch in Denmark. The PM has said these are just “teething problems”. But are they really? What’s it been like for UK fishers and farmers since we left the EU? And is there a chance we can use Brexit to make our food system better? In this episode, Ayeisha is joined by Chris Williams, NEF Associate Fellow. -To hear more from small-scale fishers on their hopes and concerns for the industry post-Brexit, watch this video: https://neweconomics.org/2018/10/fishing-after-brexit-voices-from-the-coast -You can also listen to Chris talking to fishermen about their experiences on this Radio 4 documentary: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000rm92 -Find out more about the Eastbourne Fishing Quay on our website: https://neweconomics.org/2020/08/light-on-the-horizon-the-story-of-the-eastbourne-fishing-quay -If you just can’t get enough Brexit chat, make sure you revisit our Brexit episode from last series, with Marley Morris of IPPR: https://neweconomics.org/2020/10/weekly-economics-podcast-whats-going-on-with-brexit -For fishing puns and more, Chris is on Twitter at @MarineEconomics ----- Music by Blue Dot Session and Poddington Bear under Creative Commons license.
