Brussels specifies in a statement that the agreement with London covers 85 total permitted catches (TAC) in the northeastern Atlantic Ocean, that is, 85 maximum quantities of fish from specific areas that can be caught.

The agreement was reached within the framework of the Trade and Cooperation Agreement between the European Union and the United Kingdom, which regulates the relationship between the two parties after Britain’s exit from the European Union.

This agreement sets the total allowable catch at 915,000 tons, which covers the EU quota of about 415,000 tons of cod, haddock, pecans, myelin, plaice and herring.
