Before Brexit, the Kirkella fishing vessel was one of the crowning jewels of the United Kingdom’s fleet — the freezer trawler one provided some 10% of all the cod and haddock served in the country's ever-popular fish and chip shops.

But now, following its divorce from the bloc, London is scrambling to replace those agreements. EFE
