George Eustice – 2021 Comments on EU-UK Fisheries Agreement

The comments made by George Eustice, the Environment Secretary, on 22 December 2021.

We have now concluded negotiations with the EU, setting catch levels for 2022. As an independent coastal State, we entered discussions representing the interests of the entire UK fishing industry and have secured certainty for the incoming year.

The balanced agreement made today provides a strong foundation as we seek to deliver more sustainable fisheries management, as set out in our landmark Fisheries Act.
