The United Kingdom and Norway have reached an agreement on fishing rules, the Norwegian government announced on Wednesday. The deal is striking because fishing is precisely one of the points of contention between the UK and the European Union in the Brexit negotiations.
Both parties officially sign the agreement in London on Wednesday. The agreement contains provisions on, among other things, permits, quotas, research and access to each other’s waters. The British indicate that they want to agree similar rules with Brussels as with Norway, which is not part of the EU.
The United Kingdom and the European Union are negotiating this week to reach an agreement on the two-way trade relationship after December 31, 2020. The current transition period, which started in January 2020, when the British officially left the EU, will have ended.
One of the main stumbling blocks in the negotiations is the rules for fishing. The EU wants fishermen from countries including the Netherlands and France to continue to have access to British waters. The UK wants to be able to decide for itself who allows it in its waters.
