Reuters reveals Scottish fishermen halt exports due to Brexit red tape

Reuters revealed how many Scottish fishermen have halted exports to European Union markets after post-Brexit bureaucracy shattered the system that used to put fresh langoustines and scallops in French shops just over a day after they were harvested. Fishing exporters told Reuters their businesses could become unviable after the introduction of health certificates, customs declarations and other paperwork added days to their delivery times and hundreds of pounds to the cost of each load. In the first working week after Brexit, one-day deliveries were taking three or more days – if they got through at all.
