THE CASE FOR A #FREEBRITAIN
"If the UK were to leave the EU, we would no longer be subject to the EU’s ruinous Common Fisheries Policy (the CFP) and could set our own fisheries policies (with UK rules on discards and quotas) once more. In addition to this, Britain could reclaim exclusive control over fishing rights in our legal exclusive economic zone (EEZ) under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), so we could favour British fishermen again."
