dc.description.abstract Brexit is one of the defining political events of our time. Ireland, more than any other EU member state, will be profoundly impacted by Brexit. While there are many ways in which the impact of Brexit will be felt in many aspects of Irish life it is likely that the Irish seafood sector will be impacted to greater extent than most. This thesis examines the impact of Brexit on the Irish seafood sector and provides a timely and comprehensive overview of the many and complex challenges confronting the Irish seafood sector following the UK decision to leave the EU. It is important for Ireland that any post-Brexit solution protects the Irish seafood sector and fosters the goals of the European Union’s Common Fisheries Policy (CFP). This thesis examines the development of the CFP, the structure of the Irish fishing fleet and fishing opportunities, Brexit and its impact on the seafood sector, and fisheries in the International context. The thesis identifies and critically examines five different scenarios for the Irish seafood sector and determines which are optimal for Ireland. The thesis presents an analysis of literature and primary and secondary information sources. Scenarios are developed, analysed and ranked in order of suitability to establish if an optimal solution that can be adopted by Ireland. The core goal of the thesis is to establish if there is an optimum post-Brexit solution that fosters the principles of the CFP while underpinning the fabric of coastal communities, protecting the environment and guaranteeing a thriving seafood sector in Ireland into the future by exploiting fish stocks at a sustainable level to guarantee a thriving seafood sector in Ireland into the future. en
