– The agreement gives Norwegian fishermen predictability. The negotiations have taken place in a good tone, have been effective and show that our relationship with Great Britain is close and good, says Fisheries Minister Bjørnar Skjæran (Ap).

In the agreement, Norway and Great Britain agree on mutual access to demersal fishing in each other’s waters. It is a continuation of this year’s agreement and is designed so that the parties have access to fish up to 30,000 tonnes in the other party’s zone in the North Sea next year.

It was also agreed that Norwegian vessels can fish up to 20,000 tonnes of their North Sea herring quota in the British zone, while British vessels can fish up to 20,000 tonnes of their quota in the Norwegian zone.

The parties have agreed a limited quota exchange to safeguard traditional Norwegian fishing in the British zone further west than the North Sea.

– For the whiting fleet, a good solution for both parties is now in place. In the pelagic sector, we have also gained better access to fishing North Sea herring than we had this year, says Skjæran.
