Other Media | La Voz de Galicia: The 'fish and chips' run aground in the 'Brexit'

Tuesday, February 16, 2021

The Kirkella, the ship that used to supply 10% of the fish for the famed British dish, is standing still waiting for the UK to sign a bilateral pact allowing it to return to work in the Arctic

Months of arduous negotiations did not prevent Brexit from forgetting about ships like the Kirkella, stranded in a bureaucratic pitfall that keeps it far from the northern waters where it used to fish to supply 10% of the fish sold by fish and chips in the United Kingdom. 

The vessel, considered the "pride" of British distant-water fishing, frequented the Arctic seas of Greenland and Norway.

Other Media | FiskerForum: Norway And EU In Conflict Over Svalbard Quotas

Monday, February 15, 2021

Norway has branded as unacceptable the EU’s decision to allocate a quota of its own in the Svalbard zone, claiming that this move is contrary to Norway’s sovereign rights under the law of the sea.

‘Norway protests against the EU’s unilateral quota allocation for the fisheries protection zone off Svalbard. This is completely unacceptable behaviour by the EU. Norway has the exclusive right to regulate fishing in the fisheries protection zone off Svalbard, and only Norway can allocate EU fishing quotas in the area,’ said Minister of Fisheries and Seafood Odd Emil Ingebrigtsen following a meeting with EU Environment, Maritime and Fisheries Commissioner Virginijus Sinkevicius.
