Andrew Crook, of the National Federation of Fish Friers, said a deal with Greenland was vital to stop other countries “having us over a barrel on prices”.

He added: “The British fleet cannot be expected to catch all the fish we need. Greenland’s fish is a premium product and supplies some ten per cent of fish to the south of England. We must not let a deal slip through the net.”

Greenland left the EU after voting to Grexit in 1982.

The island, an autonomous Danish-dependent territory, trades with the EU as an Overseas Country Territory.
