    THe UK needs to tune in to eating whats on our doorstep, Steer away from dredged scallops and encourage mussel farms etc. A few years ago the Irish came up with a plan that has paid off creating the seas intoimaginary fields and leaving areas as fallow for a couple of years on a rotational basis the legacy a sustainable sea bass industry

    As a footmote there are plans to develop seaweed farms in Filey bay cheffy food at the moment but highly nutritious and a good alternative to salt for seasoning (Dulce)

    The UK has a fantastic larder on land and sea some fantastic regional food variations it is about time we celebrated it, supported our domestic farmers ad fisherman and educate the population

    Sermon over ( just one of the things I am passionate about )

    Your right. The Fishing Association has declared that in a no deal Brexit (almost impossible to imagine now) the British shell fishing industry will go bust in four weeks simply because it exports its catch (or the majority of it) to Europe. Tariffs and delays will finish it of as quickly as that. Their only hope would be to find a UK market for it but as you have said, we dont eat it.

    I think you underestimate the European lust for seafood and suspect that tariffs will be be reduced for certain items.

    More likely that much of the trade will be switched to Norway or Iceland (EFTA countries - no tariffs) and Ireland. We will still sell to the EU but there will almost certainly be a big drop in the amount.
