On Monday, the government signed a fisheries agreement with the UK, which will continue to allow access to fish in each other zones throughout the year even during the so-called hard Brexit.
In our agreement, Norway and the United Kingdom agreed to continue the right to fish in each other’s zones in case the UK leaves the EU without an agreement. The agreement is now signed.
It means that if the UK leaves the EU on 31 October, without a transitional agreement, then Norwegian vessels will still have access to the UK zone throughout the year.
The UK will respect the quotas agreed between Norway and the EU.
