Reduction of French fishing fleets: the fatalism of the Minister of Fisheries is appalling!

November 18, 2021.

In Saint-Pol-de-Léon, Brittany, this morning the 2021 edition of the Assises de la Pêche et des produits de la mer opened with, as a preamble, a speech by Mrs. Annick Girardin, Minister of the Sea.

Present at this event to listen to and support the players in the French fishing and aquaculture sector, I heard, dismayed, the casual fatalism of the latter concerning the fate of the many fleets that will not resist the new declines. quotas imposed by the European Union.

Thus, in the Mediterranean, the fishing effort will have to fall further by 40% by 2025. This will inevitably condemn the many trawlers already immobilized by the previous cuts in quotas and the huge increase in fuel prices.

Fewer boats, more quotas, fewer territories, more regulations: these are the measures to come by the Minister. To fishermen anxious to make a living from their profession and the sustainability of their industries, his watchword: “Adapt!” “.

After having presented some accompanying measures concerning the retirement of fishermen – in all senses of the word – and gender parity on boats, the Minister, all shame drunk, dared to draw up a satisfactory assessment of a euro policy. -macronist who has however largely shown his abyssal flaws.

Ms. Girardin has not deceived anyone. Yawning on her own speech, she concluded with a sad observation of helplessness while showing an assumed contempt for seafarers who are the guarantors of our food sovereignty and sustainable fishing.

With Marine Le Pen President of the French Republic, there will never be any question of leaving any fishing boat at the dock before having used all the means in the possession of the public authorities to defend the integrity of the French fishing fleet.
