Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Something still not clear to me is how you determine whether a boat is counted as a UK or an EU boat. Does it depend on where the boat's owner lives? The license owner? The workers on it? Where it is registered? Where it offloads its catch?

Never a simple answer is an option ...

Half of England's quota in foreign hands | BBC News |

£160m worth of England's fishing quota is in the hands of vessels owned by companies based in Iceland, Spain and the Netherlands, according to BBC research.

That amounts to 130,000 tonnes of fish a year and 55% of the quota's annual value in 2019.

Brexit deal: What's the detail on fishing?

The deal runs to more than 1,200 pages, with a section on 'Fisheries' along with several detailed annexes.

Apparently boat registration is what matters:

Page 262.

(h) "vessel" (of a Party) means:
(i) in the case of the United Kingdom, a fishing vessel flying the flag of the United Kingdom, registered in the United Kingdom, the Bailiwick of Guernsey, the Bailiwick of Jersey or the Isle of Man, and licensed by a UK fisheries administration;
(ii) in the case of the Union, a fishing vessel flying the flag of a Member State and is registered in the Union.
