Uk Norway Fishing Agreement
Agreements on reciprocal access to fisheries and the exchange of fishing quotas are concluded, as is the case today, through annual fisheries agreements. However, other elements of North Sea fisheries cooperation must be governed by a separate tripartite agreement between the EU, Norway and the UK. Each year, the UK`s fishing fleet disembarks for 32 million pounds ($41.1 million, 35.1 million euros) of fish from Norwegian waters. The Norwegian agreement states that “we are committed to recognising the importance of the zonanne seizure as a principle of international fisheries management applied by coastal states in accordance with their obligations under the UNCLOS and related instruments with regard to the common management of stocks.” But Norway, which is not a member of the EU, says it wants a three-way deal before it opens its waters – meaning the Brexit stalemate could wipe out the previous deal. Meanwhile, French President Emmanuel Macron has rejected the accusation that the EU`s PROPOSITION for a one-year extension of fishing rights in Britain looked like “cake and food.” This agreement allows for good and solid cooperation in the field of fisheries for the future. The best way to manage common fish stocks is for coastal states to agree on how to proceed. The UK and Norway have concluded a new fisheries agreement, the first since leaving the European Union. The agreement was also welcomed by the National Federation of Fishermen`s Organisations (NFFO) in the UNITED Kingdom. Norway will be able to close access to its fishing waters from 1 January to European and British vessels, its fisheries minister has said. Above, a British fishing vessel off the yorkshire coast the framework agreement, which will come into force on 1 January, will govern control measures, licences and research and will also facilitate the reciprocal exchange of quotas and access to the waters of the other party, the Norwegian government said in a statement. Norway and the United Kingdom today signed a new framework agreement on fisheries cooperation.
The UK signs the first fisheries agreement since its withdrawal from the EU and, initially, as an independent coastal state.
