The jump from 50 to 70 percent means more fish can be sold and processed in the UK bringing a major boost to the fishing industry after Brexit. Those who fail to meet the landing or crewing requirement will have to donate quota which will increase from 16.5 percent to 20 percent next year.

Now Britons have celebrated the Brexit win after Prime Minister Boris Johnson was accused of sacrificing the fishing industry to get Brexit done.

One Express.co.uk reader, GrafGeiger, commented: “Excellent positive steps, harnessing British funds saved from EU, increasing British crews, British catches and British coastal infrastructure, all at the expense of the EU.

“Enjoy the bonanza.

“Buy more British salmon, haddock, cod, prawns, seabass, hake, sole, turbot, halibut, mackerel, sardines, herring, whelks, scallops, clams, tuna.”

Ridusofeu added: “Gradually, over time, we will se the resurgence of the UK fishing industry and processing plants.

“We can then all take great delight in seeing the demise of the EU fishing industry in much the same way they celebrated their ability to plunder British fish stocks and receive additional quota via the EU.”

Beth Rigby warns Biden to snub Brexit Britain to form stronger alliance with EU

Sky News political editor Beth Rigby suggested the US could snub the “special relationship” it long shared with the UK to form a stronger partnership with the European Union.

The Sky News political editor warned Boris Johnson his goals may struggle to be achieved.

She said: “The reality is, on a global stage, Brexit has diminished the UK in that it’s no longer part of the European gang so Biden might look to France or Germany to negotiate with that bloc rather than negotiating with that Transatlantic bridge that was once the UK.

“I think there’s an idealised vision Boris Johnson has of global Britain but when it rubs up with reality, it’s a rather different thing indeed.

“In terms of Afghanistan, it was a unilateral decision by the US, the UK was blindsided, the UK was scrambling. In a way, the UK looked diminished on the world stage.”
