MOSCOW (Sputnik) - The United Kingdom and Norway have reached an agreement on fisheries access and quotas for 2022, Fisheries Minister Victoria Prentis said on Tuesday.
“I am pleased to announce that we have concluded bilateral negotiations between the UK and Norway, securing an agreement on fishing arrangements for 2022 including the establishment of a mutual North Sea waters access zone,” Prentis said in a press release published on a governmental website.
According to the press release, the new agreement’s provisions provide the UK fishing industry access to 30,000 tonnes of its various whitefish stocks in Norwegian waters, including over 7,000 tonnes of cod in the arctic worth $21.2 million (£16 million), which is 1,500 tonnes more than in 2021.
