EU could SNUB UK fishermen after Brexit as Denmark claims HISTORICAL RIGHT to UK waters
“Clearly, this is very important for many fishing communities especially along the Jutland coast, and we all put our full support behind the EU’s negotiators to find the best way forward.”
While Niels Wichmann, the chief executive of the Danish fisherman’s association, argued the UK Government’s suggestion it could reclaim control over the sea territories was nonsense.
Mr Wichmann, who is also a part of the Danish government’s Brexit taskforce, said: “We have a common sea basin where we can fish. We have always had that.
“The British claim of getting back your waters is nonsense, because you never had them. Maybe for oil or gas but not for fish.”
