Brexit & Fisheries
A recent article in The Times by Hugo Rifkind discussed the challenges faced by the United Kingdom’s fishing industry as the UK prepares to leave the European Union, per the Brexit vote earlier this year. The article inspired us to run a series of posts on the future of European & UK fisheries post-Brexit. Each post in the series is collected below:
