The Government is planning for all scenarios including leaving the EU without a deal. We have published a technical notice on arrangements for UK fisheries should we leave the EU without a withdrawal agreement. UK fisheries administrations would advise UK quota holders what their allocation will be for the remaining months of 2019 after we leave the EU.
