Scallop wars? - not this year!




Scottish fishermen and French (Lower Normandy) reached an agreement to prevent the automn "scallop war". UK received more days at sea and then wait to fish at the same time with French fishermen. This type of agreement was reached every year, except last year and Scots started before the French, which created the bad conflict. It enables each group to have nearly the same constraints in fishing.
