Greenpeace has also found disproportionate concentrations of quotas within the English fishing fleet, with foreign vessels (mostly Dutch, Icelandic or Spanish), but also British-flagged vessels holding almost half the quota. [33] One of them, the Dutch “supertrawler” Cornelis Vrolijk, registered at Caterham, owns 23% [34] of the British TAC and 94% of the UK herring quota. [62] 30% more belong to three Rich List families,[33] which Greenpeace has called “codfathers” of the industry. [57] As in Scotland, small vessels (less than 10 metres long) that fish exclusively in coastal waters make up the bulk of the fleet (77%), but hold less than 3% of quotas for fish species subject to CFP quotas. [62] As the final round of negotiations begins today, On Tuesday 8 September in London, Whitehall has also been accused of introducing a new “concept” of access to European fishing fleets in British waters, which intersect in a number of key areas with Irish waters. But the EU wants access to its boats and says that getting a “fair deal” on fisheries is a precondition for a free trade agreement (an agreement without tariffs or goods taxes between the two). Under WTO rules, all fishing products exported to the EU would be subject to a tariff rate of 9.6%[135] and additional customs procedures and regular sanitary and plant health measures (SPS) which are currently excluded from external sounding controls. A retired Scottish boat captain, John Buchan, says these controls will have a greater impact on the market value of British lobsters than any tariff. “I have heard that premium products such as the highest quality Scottish hedrine will be marketed because of demand,” he told reporters and the Journal.
