Guiding Scottish seafood through Brexit changes

Three webinars to help seafood businesses prepare for changes to import and export processes for the European Union and Northern Ireland following the end of the Brexit transition period on December 31 are being held by the Scottish government and seafood industry organisation Seafish.

The three sessions will look at the new requirements for importing and exporting non-live fishery products, importing and exporting live fishery products and what is required for moving goods as part of the Northern Ireland Protocol.

They will provide an opportunity for aquaculture production businesses, commercial fisheries and traders to see the changes demonstrated through examples of product journeys from Scotland to the EU. A panel of experts will be on hand to listen to questions on preparing for these new requirements.

More clarity

Scotland’s rural economy secretary Fergus Ewing said: “These new webinars will provide Scottish fishermen and businesses with more clarity and help them understand the new export and import processes.”

The 90-minute sessions run from 10am-11.30am and begin on Thursday this week. They can be accessed using the following links:
