Jersey fisherman have called for clarity over the regulations they will have to abide by after Brexit.
However, some fishermen are still anxious that they may still be bound by EU regulations in the future.
Donald Thompson, President of Jersey Fishermen's Association, says that the outcome of the election will make good reading for his colleagues - but that Jersey needs to take control of its own fish stocks.
The Jersey Fishermen's Association have been very active recently and pushing our politicians to go for more autonomy, to at least take control of permitting all those boats which need to have access to our waters. We don't need to throw them out but we need to control what they're doing when they're here. Fish stocks are going the wrong way, we need to take control of managing our fish stocks. It's a public asset it's a national treasure we need to look after it better.
Senator Ian Gorst says the government 'shares the concern' of local fishermen and is already working with representatives from France to guarantee
Jersey fishermen are worried that in a post-Brexit world, we need to take more actions and are those stocks sustainable? We share entirely their concern and this is a negotiation that we're having with the French. We understand entirely what the Jersey Fishermen's Association wants and we share their policy outcomes, but we have to deal with these in a diplomatic process.
