Blog: Brexit: The fight for fish – Sky News

After months of talks attempting to secure a post-Brexit trade deal, how has fishing come to decide the UK’s political future?

Northern Ireland, immigration and the budget have all been sticking points in Brexit negotiations – but one that neither side seems willing to budge over on, is fishing.

In this episode on the Sky News Daily podcast, Dermot Murnaghan speaks to Jeremy Percy, a former fisherman and now chairman of the New Under Tens Fishing Association. They discuss the situation from the perspective of the British fishing industry. Also joining Dermot is Natasha Bowler, Sky’s Brussels producer who explains the politics behind the fishing disputes.
