Mackerel wars

This article was originally published in Foodnews

Concerns have been raised that Iceland and the Faroe Islands are landing more than their agreed quota of mackerel, leading Britain to seek sanctions. The Independent states that Iceland has laid claim to 150 000 tonnes of mackerel and the Faroe islands to 147 000 tonnes, exceeding their agreed limits of 2 000 tonnes and 25 000 tonnes respectively. This is causing competition with the UK and especially Scotland, for whom mackerel is a valuable resource. Despite these issues, British canned mackerel exports to August were up 37.33% to 1 248 tonnes.
