Have Brexit, pollution and the pandemic killed the great British shellfish industry?

the industry has been in a steady downward spiral.A post-Brexit world has proven to be a difficult place for shellfish fishermen.

EU red tape in the immediate wake of Brexit caused prices to plummet and created chaos at the border, as British exporters got stuck with lorries full of live shellfish, only to be turned away if a form was filled out in the wrong colour pen.

One company sent £15,000 worth of scallops to the border in January 2021 and got delayed due to paperwork errors; by the time they arrived in France, the scallops had gone off.In the year since, exporters have been trying to fathom the new regulations after Brussels ruled they could no longer bring live mussels, oysters, scallops, clams and cockles into Europe from what are referred to as ‘category B’ waters, unless they had been purified.

Most UK shellfish is considered ‘cat B’ (the categorisation relates to the number of E. coli found in samples of the shellfish – with cat B, no sample is permitted to exceed 46,000 E.

‘Our lobsters are gold plated now’: Atlantic Canada lobster exports, prices soar
Dumping day - Lobster fishing season opens in southwestern Nova Scotia Sales of live and processed lobster rebounded following the first wave of COVID-19.Prices started to go up with demand and have continued climbing since.Canadian lobster exports reached a staggering $3.26 billion last year, beating the previous record of $2.59 billion, set in 2019, by more than 25 per cent.With many consumers saving money during the pandemic and limited travel or restaurant dining, the crustacean long considered a luxury item for special occasions became a top seller in the U.S.“Americans bought lobster during the pandemic like they never did before and that drove up demand and price,” says Geoff Irvine, executive director of the Lobster Council of Canada.While processed lobster — meat and tails — was in high demand in the U.S., sales of live lobster increased in Asia.“There is unlimited demand in Asia for Canadian lobster,” Sproul says. “It’s a top quality product and we have a good trade relationship.”Strong demand, coupled with smaller catches in winter months, sent shore prices spiralling as high as $19.50 a pound.“The highest wharf price that I’ve ever heard of for lobster in my life was a few weeks ago at $19.50 a pound,” Sproul says.Prices have since dropped to around $14.50 this week and could ease further during the spring lobster fishery.The opening of several lobster fishing areas across Atlantic Canada in the coming weeks is expected to boost supply.Thousands of extra fishing boats will hit the water setting traps.
