New rebound in the Franco-British battle for fishing.

Thursday, hundreds of fishermen had shouted at the fiasco and renunciation when the minister had mentioned, during the Assises de la Pêche, a compensation plan for the French boats which would remain at the quayside at the end of the negotiations. A plan which hinted at a retreat of France in this conflict which has been stretching for nearly a year between Paris and London. " 

We will continue the fight as announced, 

" she said after the meeting this Sunday at Cape Gris-Nez, in Pas-de-Calais. "

 We fight every day for these boats, for these licenses and we will not let go at all, 

" she added. Friday, Emmanuel Macron had already tried to reassure the fishermen. " 

We will not let go of our fishermen

 " and " 

before Christmas, France will have taken a position,

 ”he said.

If, according to Annick Girardin,

"80% of cases"

are now settled with

"more than 960 licenses"

granted, around 150 French boats are still awaiting authorizations to set their nets in British waters.

As a result, fishermen's representatives have indicated that they remain committed to putting in place measures to express their dissatisfaction.

 The fishermen will move.

I believe they have been patient enough.

They

've been

waiting for eleven months 

, ”said Olivier Leprêtre, president of the Hauts-de-France regional fisheries committee.
