The deal announced in Brussels provoked anger from the UK fishing industry, which will be subject to EU quotas throughout the 21-month transition period without British representation in setting quotas.Fishing industry leaders accused the UK Government of trading away sovereignty over British waters during the transition phase, and Nicola Sturgeon leaped on what she called a "massive sellout" by the Conservatives.In a joint press conference, Mr Davis hailed the agreement as confirmation that the UK could negotiate its own trade deals during the transition, which can be signed and implement the moment the 21-month period ends.READ MORE: Tories bid to outflank SNP in post-Brexit powers row with ‘Union guarantee’The pound rose by more than a … [Read more...] about Fishing industry’s anger as UK and EU strike Brexit transition deal
