To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, further to the Answer of 7 November 2017 to Question 110955, on fishing catches: British Overseas Territories, what fishing tonnage quota is assigned to EU member states other than the UK for each of the Overseas Territories; and what arrangements will be made after the UK leaves the EU.
After we leave the EU, the UK will remain committed to protecting the interests of its Overseas Territories (UKOTs). The two most relevant Regional Fisheries Management Organisations (RFMOs) are the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) and the Indian Ocean Tuna Commission (IOTC), which cover fisheries in the Atlantic and Indian oceans. The UKOTs have their own seats in these RFMOs. EU vessels do not have access to fish in the Exclusive Economic Zone of any Overseas Territory.
