Brexit & Seafood: Good or Bad News?

Brexit & Seafood. Since the British voted in favor of “Brexit”, Keyport has been asked by our suppliers and customers if we have a point of view on how Brexit will impact the seafood industry.  While most questions are coming from the perspective of the crab business, our partners reflect concern and worry across many companies selling seafood to, or buying from,  the United Kingdom.  Keyport’s short answer to the question is this, “It depends on your perspective”. We add to that the quintessential British expression “Keep calm and carry on”.  In other words, there may be cause for concern for some companies, but the seafood business will adapt.  See the links below for some articles we found helpful to understand Brexit & and its’ impact on the seafood industry.
