OTHER MEDIA | The Fishing Daily - Faroe Islands announce restrictions on Russian fishing vessels

Tuesday, June 06, 2023

The Faroe Islands will implement comprehensive restrictions on access for Russian fishing vessels to Faroese ports, the island’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Industry and Trade has announced.

In a statement the Ministry said:

“The National Government intends to tighten restrictive measures against Russia. This will be done, among other things, by putting in place comprehensive restrictions on the access of Russian fishing vessels to Faroese ports. This means that the ports will be blocked for all activities that are outside the fishing agreement between the Faroe Islands and Russia. This is expected to limit Russian activity in Faroese ports to around 70 percent compared to what it has been in the last year.”

Although the restrictions will be in place, this means that the Faroe Islands will continue to be a central hub for transhipment and transhipment of the majority of the Russian catch of fish in the North Atlantic.
