UK fishermen don't need to worry about Brexit if they work in Norway's waters
Topics: FISHERMEN BREXIT NORWAY WATERS WORK UK
Currently the UK fleet fishes in Norwegian waters under an agreement between the EU and Norway. When the UK leaves the EU and becomes an independent coastal state this current agreement will cease, however the agreement signed today ensures that the existing arrangements between the two countries will remain in place until the end of 2019.
Both the UK and Norway are committed to continuing to work together, providing certainty for their respective industries and managing shared fish stocks sustainably. ■
