Following the conclusion of the new Coastal State mackerel agreement, which was signed in London on 12 March, agreement was reached on 13 March between the European Union and the Faroe Islands on reciprocal exchanges of fishing opportunities in each other’s waters for 2014. This agreement follows a period of four years, during which time the Parties had not concluded arrangements, due to the long-standing mackerel dispute.
