LONDON (Sputnik) - The United Kingdom announced a deal with the European Union and Norway on Friday that will limit fishing catch in six jointly-managed fish stocks in the North Sea.
"We are proud to have led the discussion to a positive conclusion as we seek to set a gold standard for the entire fishing industry," British Fisheries Minister Victoria Prentis said.
The limits for North Sea haddock, plaice, whiting, herring and saithe were set at or below the level advised by the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea, a Denmark-based advisory panel, while limits for cod were kept unchanged.
