This agreement is to state the total allowable catches and quotas for share stocks and it includes an agreement on the exchange of reciprocal fishing possibilities in each other’s waters. Part of the agreement is also focusing on stepping up the efforts to reduce discards.

"I am pleased that we have reached agreement with the EU on fisheries management for 2013. The EU is an important partner, and together we have taken new steps to ensure sound management of our shared resources in the North Sea and Skagerrak," says Norway's Minister of Fisheries and Coastal Affairs Lisbeth Berg-Hansen.

Control and monitoring of the fisheries is a key part of the collaboration between Norway and the EU, and the parties have agreed that this work will be continued in 2013.

"The fisheries negotiations with the EU include a number of sensitive issues, and this year the cooperative climate was good, with both parties demonstrating great willingness to find solutions. The agreement for 2013 further cements the close, constructive collaboration that Norway has developed with the EU in the field of fisheries in recent years, which can be further deepened in the years ahead," says Berg-Hansen.
