Pressure is mounting among French fishermen, while sanctions against the British should fall by midnight on Tuesday, 2 November, if the French are not granted fishing licenses.

Procrastination prevails among French fishermen awaiting the conclusion of the debate between France and the United Kingdom. “We expect results, but without much hope”, explains Olivier Lepretre, chairman of the Hauts-de-France Marine Fisheries and Marine Agriculture Committee. In the port of Boulogne-sur-Mer (Pas-de-Calais), only 35 out of 80 fishing license applications were accepted by the British. Threats of retaliation must be implemented from midnight on Tuesday, November 2.

There is also growing concern for scallop fisherman Julian Camus, in Ile-et-Villain, in Saint-Malo. His boat, which does not have on-board electronics, was refused a license. Due to this their business is temporarily closed. “We End Up With Our Employees To Whom We Cannot Offer Contracts”, he laments. If negotiations fail, some fishermen fear losing their license to fish in UK waters.
