Paul Lines, Lostoft Fish Market Alliance Chairman, Told Express.com that the British could dominate the European fishing marketplace by supplying freshwater fish. He added that the UK government must prioritize rebuilding the domestic fishing industry and that thousands of jobs need to be created in the industry to make Brescit a success.
Mr Lines said: “You want to cut and sell the raw material and we have to make a lot of money if we are smart.
“We can supply half of the fish that Europe needs.
“Instead of catching it on their own boat we can be its catcher and supplier, it’s our market.
“Fishermen will lose, processors won’t get that raw material from anywhere.

“Grants from the Dutch, French and Belgian fishing industries have grown over 40 years through injection and opportunity.”
He continued: “We have ended 40 years, Brexit has to turn this death table.
“We have been able to rebuild this industry around Great Britain in fishing and create 12,000 jobs.
“It’s so simple and if it hadn’t happened in our case, Brexit would have failed miserably.”
“I saw the quota fall to a point where we put a pot.
“We struggle to make a living from what we have left.”
He added: “We allowed all of this to be part of Europe, now we want it again
“We want to see their boats cut, we want to see them get a new modern fleet because we want it.
“As a country we had it. If we survive on our own, we have what we can do to make money.”
