The aim of this article is to analyze the new regime for fisheries applying to United Kingdom (UK) and European Union (EU) waters since the beginning of 2021, and to explain why and how it came about. Accordingly, the following section attempts to explain why the UK decided to leave the EU and its Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) and the process by which it did so. This is followed by an analysis of the new regime, focusing on management measures, allocation of catches and access to fishing grounds. The article ends with some concluding observations that consider whether the new regime is a change for the better.
