Following Brexit, the United Kingdom is no longer to be part of the European Union's Common Fisheries Policy (CFP). It is to become an independent coastal state and be fully responsible for managing fisheries in the UK’s Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), extending 200 nautical miles (nm) from shore.
This Briefing provides the background to the incoming changes, the negotiations held between the UK and EU concerning fisheries and the work developed by the government in the United Kingdom to set out the country's post-Brexit path on this matter.
