The AGRIFISH Council meet today to discuss forestry and markets and other matter such as the progress in the annual consultations with the UK

Ministers from across the EU will meet today at the AGRIFISH Council to discuss the EU Forest Strategy, the current market situation for EU agricultural products and on other matter such as the progress in the annual consultations with the UK.

EU ministers will hear from the Commission about the progress of the annual consultations with the United Kingdom on fishing quotas for 2022. The role of the Council is to provide guidance to the Commission, which leads the consultations with the UK, and ultimately to approve the proposal for fishing quotas before consultations are formally closed. 

More than 100 fish stocks in the Atlantic and the North Sea have been co-managed with the United Kingdom over the last few decades. As of 2021, fish stocks which were jointly managed by the EU and the UK are no longer considered exclusive EU fish resources; instead, they are shared resources under international law.

In line with the Trade and Cooperation Agreement signed by the EU and the UK and which applies from 01 January 2021, every year the two parties will hold consultations to set their respective fishing opportunities for the shared stocks for the year to come.
