The Wider Image: Danish fishing communities fear Brexit could sink them
In the small fishing town of Thyboron on the northwestern coast of Denmark, many fishermen worry the British waters they have become increasingly dependent on will be out of reach when Britain leaves the European Union. Since the 1970's, EU fishermen have had access to British waters under a deal, that many in Britain saw as unfair. Now some see Brexit as a chance to "take back control" of their waters and keep foreign vessels out. Between 30 and 40 percent of the catch landed in Thyboron Port come from British waters. Under a 'no deal' Brexit scenario, Britain can choose to close its sea border completely overnight or wait until the end of 2019, according to the Danish fishing minister. If a deal is reached, EU fishing vessels could have temporary access until a permanent trade deal is reached. The uncertainty is already having an impact on the local fishing industry, as new investments are being held back in ships and fishing quotas.
