Norway says it could block EU, British fishing vessels from January 1
“If we do not get a deal by Jan. 1, we will not open Norway’s economic fishing zones to vessels from the EU and Britain,” Ingebrigtsen told parliament.
“Neither can we expect Norwegian vessels to get access to their zones before a deal is in place.”
“Norway is ready to start talks so that we can agree on total quotas for our common stocks in the North Sea. Our goal is to continue as normal, but for that we need clarity, quickly,” Ingebrigtsen later said in a statement. ■
