You should see the reaction from Green Peace and the likes.

The EU is now hated by everyone who cares about the environment just watch this back fire on them

Barnier is just a lowly functionaris, he doesn't make any policies or laws. A bit like cummings, who only advises boris.

Who would have though Greenpeace would ever be backing Brexit as a means to ban those death ships!!

Tell me please Solly, what is your view on these ships of sheer destruction. I know your country use them, but what is your personal view? Are you in agreement that they should be here destroying stocks in banned areas? or do you agree they should be banned completely?

You could be fooled to think that surely small cottage industry boats are better for the environment.
Not necessarily. Of course a single smaller vessel will have less of a direct impact but of course you would require a great many more of them for the same catch. Larger vessels also tend to have far better systems for ensuring that they accurately target their intended catch leading to greatly reduced by-catch. And supertrawlers have measures to ensure the fish is filleted and frozen on board in the quickest manner, ensuring the fish is as fresh as it can be when it arrives in the fish and chip shops of britain.
Thereís no evidence for the oft-heard assertion that big boats are crowding out the small boats. They arenít even fishing in the same waters. Small vessels tend to operate in coastal waters. Larger, specialist vessels, such as freezer trawlers, have the equipment and ice class to work 1,500 miles away from the UK, in waters where smaller vessels simply couldnít operate.
