Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

It doesn't look as if being outside the EU will necessarily bring a bonanza for all UK fishermen. Perhaps only to those already doing well.

Iceland's fishing industry 'better off outside' EU
"...while bigger companies on the island are flourishing, the small-scale fleet is shrinking. Some fear traditional fishing methods may die out altogether... The 10 biggest families in Iceland control 50-60% of the quota. ... Since 1984, the number of people working in the industry has gone down by half. Smaller boats are struggling - just as they are in the UK."
