The European Fisheries Alliance
is a coalition of European fishing fleets representing the interests of fishing fleets in the remaining Member States of the European Union who are traditionally also fishing in what are to become ‘UK waters’. Our founding members represent over 18,000 fishermen and 3,500 vessels all directly impacted by Brexit. We have come together to ensure that the Brexit agreement takes into account the economic and social realities of fishing and coastal communities across Europe. Also at stake here is the fundamentally transboundary and interdependent nature of fishing activities in the North Sea, waters west of Scotland, the Irish Sea, the Celtic Sea as well as the Channel.
Our member organisations represent fishermen, fleets and companies of all sizes and income levels. The following organisations are the founding members of the European Fisheries Alliance:
