BREXIT could prove very profitable for the UK fishing industry despite the frustration from the EU on a trade agreement.

Marine ecology lecturer Bryce Stewart from the University of York insisted the UK fishing industry could thrive after Brexit. While speaking to CGTN, Mr Stewart claimed the UK could increase its fishing quotas and see significant profits. He also addressed the growing frustration from France, Spain and Portuguese fishermen and what impact this would have on the UK.

Mr Stewart noted the EU will be unhappy with whatever fishing deal is agreed as it is unlikely to be as good as the one they currently have.

Mr Stewart said: "The hope is that Britain will be able to increase its share of quotas, so basically the share of certain species it is allowed to catch.

"That will be very profitable for the British fishing industry.

"Some people have said it might be able to double the amount of quota it currently catches.

"I think it is unlikely but it is certainly what motivated the big push from the fishing industry towards Brexit in the first place."

The CGTN host questioned what impact would the European member states have on the UK if they remain unhappy with the fishing agreement.

Mr Stewart replied: "The European position from the individual countries and the commission and the chief negotiator Michel Barnier has been that they do not want to change things at all.

"At the moment the European nations have a pretty good deal."

Mr Stewart outlined the many benefits the EU are scared of losing if a new fishing agreement is made between the UK and the European Union.

He said: "They are able to come into UK waters, up to 12 miles, and catch quite a lot of the fish around our shores.

"Around 50, 60 percent are actually caught by those European vessels.

"With Brexit that could be quite different so you can imagine any change from this is going to be a loss for the EU from where they stand now."
