Other Media | La Voz de Galicia: The 'fish and chips' run aground in the 'Brexit'

Tuesday, February 16, 2021

The Kirkella, the ship that used to supply 10% of the fish for the famed British dish, is standing still waiting for the UK to sign a bilateral pact allowing it to return to work in the Arctic

Months of arduous negotiations did not prevent Brexit from forgetting about ships like the Kirkella, stranded in a bureaucratic pitfall that keeps it far from the northern waters where it used to fish to supply 10% of the fish sold by fish and chips in the United Kingdom. 

The vessel, considered the "pride" of British distant-water fishing, frequented the Arctic seas of Greenland and Norway.
