#Faced with this uncertainty “and taking into account the risks of controls by the #British authorities and the time required to recover the equipment, they invite the #Breton shipping lines not to remain in #United #Kingdom waters after midnight on #December 31, 2020 and to remove the sleeping gear before the end of the year», #Indicates the press release posted on the site of the regional committee for maritime fisheries and marine farming of #Brittany.

#In the event that it is necessary to have clearances to enter UK waters, the time to obtain them could result in loss of turnover. The #Breton committees therefore indicate that they have requested that the aid announced by the #Ministry of the #Sea “be implemented as soon as possible and eligible from #January 1, 2021».
