Sky News Europe Correspondent Adam Parsons as tweeted EU sources have suggested there is “progress on fishing rights”. He has said UK fishermen would receive a “notably increased quota of stocks” that are sold to the country’s customers. The deal would also see EU boats keeping quotas for fish that are popular in the EU but rarely eaten in the UK, such as herring and mackerel.
Mr Parsons tweeted: “EU sources suggest progress on fishing rights, based around this idea.
“UK fishermen get notably increased quota of stocks that are sold to UK customers.
“EU boats keep similar quotas for fish (like herring, mackerel) that are loved in the EU but rarely eaten in the UK.”
