LONDON (Reuters) - Britain said on Tuesday it had agreed a new deal with Norwayfor fishing in each other’s waters in 2022.

The agreement will allow Britain's fleet to fish up to 30,000 tonnes of various whitefish stocks in Norwegian waters, and vice versa.

The UK government said fleets would benefit from the increased flexibility to target the stocks in the best condition throughout the fishing year, supporting a more sustainable fishing industry.
