Tensions escalate between France and the UK over fishing

At night from Wednesday to Thursday, France warned two British fishing boats that were fishing off the coast of the French town of Le Havre. The French authorities sent one of the two boats to the port of Le Havre. The captain of the boat risks legal action and the fish caught may be confiscated.

According to France, British boats do not have proper rights to fish in French waters as a result of Brexit.

The dispute between France and Great Britain over the fishing waters continues to grow. On Wednesday, Paris tried to pressure it by threatening sanctions that could take effect from November 2. For example, France could introduce more border controls for British products.

The British said they were “deeply disappointed” and described the measures mentioned as disproportionate. According to France’s European Affairs Minister Clement Bonn, his country must now speak the “language of power”. “That’s all this British government seems to understand,” Byon told CNews TV in response to the latest incident.

The French are unhappy that the UK has issued so few permits that French fishermen are allowed to fish in British waters. The British government says other small fishing vessels cannot prove conclusively that they are also fishing in British waters before Brexit.

According to Paris, with this tough stance, the UK is violating the agreements it made with the European Union when the British left the country’s bloc.

The British fishing boat captured by the French has been licensed

According to the British authorities, the British fishing boat seized by France from Wednesday night to Thursday had a license and was allowed to fish off the French coast of Le Havre. Britain’s Environment Minister George Eustice said he did not know why the boat had been impounded.
