It looks like Brexit negative side effects are far more terrible than Nigel Farage could ever imagine!
Upto brexit, alot of the supply chains stockpiled stuff.
Because they knew there would at the very least, be temp. disruption.
However somethings, you need fresh.
Fruit & veggies, for exsample.
This is mostly a issue with northern ireland.
Theres also the story of scotish fishermen, that normally sell crab/clams ect, are running into issues getting things delivered in time.
Apparently if you cant store these things right, and get them where they need to be within 24hours, its not something a buyer wants to pickup.
So currently alot of this just ends up in a landfill somewhere in scotland. Scotish fisherman are makeing very little, because their market to sell these items were in the EU.
Same with brishtish fishermen, they need certifications and health inspections ect ect..... but they dont have things ready on their side of the fence.
They might not until mid april. So currently bristish fishermen, are just sitting back on land, watching their boats, with no income/profits.
Apparently the costs of running a ship, has a certain threshhold it needs to pass before its profitable. To do so, you need to catch x amount of something, and be able to sell it. They arnt. So they just choose to not go fish. The EU, used to subsidise the gas, for the ships.... so its now more expensive for british fishermen to go fish as well.
Ontop of all that, because they cant sell to the EU, they can only try to sell (those that still attempt to fish) what they have to internal markets.
The problem is, they have more fish than they want/can to eat. This drives prices down (competetion) on fish (which is currently great for british consumers that love to eat fish all day long), but overtime its gonna hurt the bottom line on alot of these fishing boats.
Also apparnetly to get around all this red tape, its easier to just "relocate" your bussiness to another place.
Ei. Denmark. So a fishing company may pay danish taxes, and offload the fish it caught to danish places where they are cleaned/certified and all that, and shipped out. This will create jobs in denmark, and pay taxes to denmark..... while the fishing crew / boat, resides in the UK.
(setting up, chains, and moveing things around like this is alot of hassel..... some might just not return afterwards).
All this fuss the UK made about Fishing.
Now it looks like the UK is fine, just leaveing them to rot.
They are actively destroying their own fishing industry (currently), from the looks of it.

Ontop of alot of these fishing boats, makeing a liveing by selling to markets that relied on resturants ect.
Demand is low..... Covid19 (closed resturants) + brexit, could kill alot of the UKs fishing industry.
