The Bailiwick of Guernsey on 1 December 2021 issued fishing licences to 40 qualifying EU vessels under Article 502 of the UK-EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement (the “TCA”). The licences issued are all in respect of French vessels registered in either Normandy or Brittany. These licences will enable those 40 vessels to continue to fish in Bailiwick waters under the new TCA licensing regime from 1 February 2022. All vessels listed on the interim authorisation will continue to be able to fish under the current interim arrangements until these expire on 31 January 2022.
