Brexit benefit - the 12 mile limit.

Last week saw two examples of EU fishing vessels tracked by AIS within the 12 mile limit off Cornwall...



the Job Senor, a Belgian flagged Ditch crewed 300hp beam trawler...



working almost exclusively inside 12 miles almost certainly targeting Dover sole at this time of year...


this chart indicating her average speed over the course of her trip...







while Saturday saw the 2,800hp stern trawler Wiron 5 take a break from steaming for Falmouth Bay...



to make an about turn south of the Lizard, also inside the 12 mile limit...


her current trip having covered many miles looking for fish it seems...


this chart shows her average speed since January 27th.
