Dozens of French boats protest jersey with UK for fishing rights – BBC News




About 60 French fishing boats have taken to the streets of Jersey’s largest port in a protest over access to the island’s waters. Two Royal Navy ships were sent to deal with a possible blockade of St Helier and France responded by sending two patrol ships on its own. Under the Brexit trade agreement, only French crews with a fishing history in the area are eligible for a license. The French say these licenses have unagreed limits and conditions.
