The Government has not made an assessment of the financial impact on the UK fishing industry of EU fly-seining vessels operating in UK waters but we are currently examining our wider policy on fly-seining vessels to ensure our approach is evidence-based, and in line with the UK/EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement.
