This At a Glance note is the second in a series of three, prepared for a PECH Committee Workshop. It provides a short overview of an analysis of the trade aspects of the EU-UK TCA relating to fisheries.

This EPRS paper analyses the implementation of the UK Withdrawal Agreement in three areas identified by the EU as key to ensuring the UK's orderly exit from the Union: financial settlement, citizens' rights and the Ireland/Northern Ireland Protocol. The citizens' rights provisions contained in Part Two of the Agreement are designed to protect the rights of both EU and UK citizens who had exercised free movement and made life choices based on the rights flowing from the UK's membership of the EU. ...

From 2021 to 2025, the EU is gradually transferring part of its fishing quota shares to the UK, in line with the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA).

The quota transfer in 2021 for the selected stocks totals 62 211 tonnes, with an estimated overall value of €103 million.
