The UK’s state of the art trawler, Kirkella

For 2023, the UK has been allocated only 750 tonnes of cod in Norwegian waters and 5,200 tonnes in the waters around Svalbard. The UK has lost fishing opportunities in NAFO (Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Organization) and has no quotas in Greenland.

Therefore the total available cod quota in distant waters for 2023 is 5,950 tonnes, compared with a total of 19,500 tonnes in 2018.
