Brexit series - Implications for Fisheries
This seminar on Brexit and Fisheries focuses on a key strategic policy area for the island of Ireland as negotiations commence on untangling the United Kingdom's relationship with the European Union.
As an area of exclusive EU competence under the Common Fisheries Policy, ensuring that fishing is “environmentally, economically and socially sustainable”, many issues are now open for discussion and potential re-negotiation - fishing rights, the redrawing of territorial waters, technical developments, marketing and standards for fish products and autonomous tariff quotas for fish imports and the re-positioning of the UK as an independent coastal state under the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).
This half-day conference will run from 2-5pm and will examine the distinct legal and regulatory challenges that Brexit poses for fisheries on the island of Ireland and seeks to address some of these vital topics, with the assistance of a panel of expert speakers from industry, policy, academia and practice.
