Portugal will fish less cod in 2021 in Norwegian waters in 2021, under an agreement concluded between the European Union (EU), London and Oslo, said the Minister of the Sea, Serrão Santos, in Brussels on 23 March.

The minister, who was speaking to Portuguese journalists at the end of a Council of Fisheries Ministers of 27, which he chaired, said that in 2021 Portugal had a quota of 2,607 tonnes of cod in Norwegian waters and 2,274 tonnes in the area of Svalbard.

Last year, the cod fishing quota allocated to Portugal in Norway was 2,900 tonnes, while in Svalbard it was 2,418 tonnes.

In this archipelago between Norway and the North Pole, the Norwegian Government, based on scientific advice, has reduced fishing quotas for all EU Member States, based on scientific advice.

Last week, the EU, the United Kingdom and Norway closed a tripartite agreement on total allowable catches (TACs) and fishing quotas for the North Sea.
