Central Arctic: EU to enter agreement against unregulated fishing

The EU will soon become a party to an international agreement to prevent unregulated high seas fisheries in the central Arctic Ocean.

The Council today adopted a decision on the conclusion of such agreement, which was signed on 3 October 2018 by the five Arctic Ocean coastal states – Canada, Denmark (acting on behalf of Greenland and the Faroe Islands), Norway, Russia, and the United States – together with China, the EU, Iceland, Japan, and South Korea.
