Without progress in fishing, threatens to alter the agreement on the Irish border
With pressure and unilateral decisions. This is how the British Government wants to break the blockade in which the negotiations with the EU are to define their future relationship after Brexit.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has shut down seafood processing plants, stalled commercial fishing seasons, gutted the foodservice industry, and put aquaculture operations at risk.

In late July, the company was forced to initiate an emergency harvest of close to 200,000 fish, with a total weight of approximately 400 tons, only 150 tons of which were sent for processing to be sold.
