    Yorkshire lobster exporter says Brexit costs have forced it to close

    "Government has not been straight with fishing industry, says Sam Baron of Baron Shellfish, Bridlington

    A lobster exporter who is winding up his 60-year-old family business has blamed the government for failing to be honest about Brexit red tape and hidden costs.

    Sam Baron, who worked alongside his father to set up Baron Shellfish in Bridlington, east Yorkshire, said that the government has failed to be straight with the fishing industry.

    Industry experts said that Baron Shellfish, the first lobster-tank business in Europe’s largest shellfish port, appears to be the first big exporter to have announced its closure.

    ...

    “It is all Brexit-related – the extra costs, extra paperwork and the extra gamble, and it is down to the government and the EU.

    “Every time you send out transport with lobster, it is like playing Russian roulette with five bullets in your gun.”

            Did he, his family and his workers vote out in 2016? If so ... they got exactly what they voted for.

                Annoyingly with all these business going bust we’re not going to get cheap fish either.
                The fishing rights will be sold to the EU fishermen (again, like they did in 70s and 80s) for a reduced price.
