SFF has responded to details of the fisheries agreements on fishing opportunities for 2022 between the UK, EU and Norway

With the news that the UK, Norway and the EU have agreed Total Allowable Catches (TACs) for the six jointly managed stocks in the North Sea, Elspeth Macdonald, chief executive of SFF, said: “The agreement reached through this three-way negotiation sets the 2022 TACs for some of Scotland’s most important commercial stocks. The UK can now move forward with the bilateral discussions with our neighbouring coastal states about fishing opportunities and access arrangements for the year ahead, the aim being to provide clarity and certainty to the industry before the start of the new year.

“While the industry is yet again faced with fluctuations in TACs based on scientific advice that in many cases doesn’t reflect what fishermen see on the grounds, UK and Scottish government negotiators have worked hard to secure the best possible outcomes for our fleet, showing the benefit of the UK being at the negotiating table in its own right, which it could never be as part of the EU.”
