Research for PECH committee: Workshop on impacts of the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement on fisheries and aquaculture in the EU - Part II: Trade aspects

Study 27-01-2022

This study is the second research paper in a series of three, commissioned for a PECH Committee Workshop. It applied the MAGNET model to quantify the impact of the EU-UK TCA on fish related sectors. The results show negative impacts on trade, production and consumption of fisheries and aquaculture products for both parties. For the EU, the biggest losses are found in the fish processing sector. The overall impact is driven by increased trade costs whereas the impact of a reduced total allowable catches is rather limited.
