Victoria Prentis – 2020 Comments on Fisheries Agreement Between UK and Greenland

The comments made by Victoria Prentis, the Fisheries Minister, on 9 November 2020.

The UK and Greenland both have a proud history as outward-looking countries who have benefited from the wealth of our seas. I thank Greenland for their constructive approach to these negotiations.

As we regain our position as an independent coastal state, we are committed to working with our North-East Atlantic neighbours, like Greenland, for the benefit of our fishing industries and our marine environment.
