France/United Kingdom: Protest blocks Calais Port January 25

Sailor protest at Calais Port January 25; major impact on port operations

25 jan. 09h28 UTC
TIMEFRAME expected from 25/1/2018, 12h00 until 25/1/2018, 11h59 (Europe/Paris). COUNTRY/REGION Calais, Dover, Boulogne-sur-Mer


Dozens of sailboats are blocking the Calais Port as of the morning of Thursday, January 25, in protest of electrofishing in the North Sea, allowed by the Netherlands. Ferry services between Calais and Dover have been halted. It is unclear when operations will resume.

Moreover, sailors are organizing roadblocks around the Boulogne-sur-Mer Port, preventing seafood shipments from being delivered.


In January 2018 the European Parliament sided with French sailors in a ruling against electrofishing but the decision has no legal weight.


Individuals are advised to confirm ferry reservations and avoid all protests as a precaution.
