Brexit

There is no organisation better placed than Seafish to help the industry manage the impact of Brexit. We will use our independent, authority status to inform the coming transition by sharing the valued expertise from across the supply chain.

The UK's intention to leave the EU will certainly have considerable impact on the seafood industry, but it's going to take some time before we can fully understand what, when and how.

There is no organisation better placed than Seafish to help the industry manage the impact of Brexit. We will use our independent, authority status to inform the coming transition by sharing the valued expertise of our own staff and pooling the insight of a range of stakeholders from across the supply chain.

  • Our experts in the field of economics, regulation, trade, market insight and safety and training are working to highlight issues and opportunities now and are looking ahead to understand the longer term forecasts. We'll share that work with industry over the next few months.
  • The Seafish Common Language Group, our all industry forum, met in the week following the Referendum and discussed the potential Brexit implications. We have agreed to hold a 'Brexit special' session in London on October 7th, to understand the implication of this work. More information to follow.
  • The  Humber Seafood Summit on September 27/28th featured a dedicated expert panel session on all the latest issues as they developed over the summer months.
  • Our Brussels -based Stakeholder Advisor, Cristina Fernandez, will be reporting back on the latest developments in Brussels on a week by week basis. To receive her updates, email Cristina Cristina.fernandez@seafish.co.uk
