London and Brussels have agreed catch limits for 70 shared fish stocks worth approximately £333m in fishing opportunities to UK vessels.
The deal replaces provisional catch limits set by the two sides earlier this year.
Environment Secretary George Eustice said: “As we move forward as an independent coastal State, we have been steadfast in representing the interests of our industry and seeking to manage our fisheries more sustainably.
“This agreement provides certainty to our fishing industry and we now have a stable platform in place for managing our fisheries this year and in future years.”
