The Wider Image: Danish fishing communities fear Brexit could sink them
Skipper and third generation fisherman from Thyboron Poul-Erik Rom, 35, works on the bridge with his father Ejvind Rom, 65, on their ship Anna-Lise in the village of Thyboron in Jutland, Denmark, March 18, 2019. Each year Poul Erik and his father land fish worth some 25 million Danish Crowns ($3.75 million) from their vessel, one third of which come from British waters. "I like the unpredictability of fishing. Sometimes we catch 200 kilos, sometimes two tonnes, and we never know what prices we will get," he said. "It seems like we have to sail further and further away from the shore to find the fish," said Poul Erik, who worries what will happen if he is restricted access to British water. The problem for Poul Erik and his father is that as the water warms due to climate change, the fish they rely on such as cod and haddock tend to swim towards colder waters nearer the UK and further north.
