Norway and the Faroe Islands have agreed on mutual opportunities to fish for mackerel in each other’s zones in 2021.

Faroese vessels will be able to fish up to 83,524 tonnes in Norwegian waters, which corresponds to half of the islands’ national mackerel quota, the Norwegian government wrote in a press release on Friday.

This year, the Faroese authorities abolished parts of the docking obligation for Faroese vessels so all mackerel fished in Norwegian waters can also be transported through docks in Norway.
