          Viva La Espana....

          Are foreign fishing vessels allowed to fish in Norwegian waters, or are they fishing outside our territorial waters?

            Hopefully they respect our fishing laws and are fishing outside our fishing border.

              Some have licence to fish within the 200 n.mile EEZ and in the Svalbard Zone. Some even to deliver their catch in Norway.
              It is reciprocal. If Norway banned EU boats from fishing in Norwegian water, Norwegian boats would be banned from fishing in the EU Zone. Fair deal, as long as everybody follow the rules. Unfortunately there are sinners on both sides. Surprised?? Norwegian fishing boats break rules too!!

                I am fully aware that we have agreements with other countries fishing in each other's fishing zones that you mention here.
                Now, my answer was quite general when it comes to other nations' ability to stay within the laws of the area that a vessel at any time had to be in, and of course that goes for Norwegian vessels as well.

                I am not of the opinion that the Norwegian fishing vessels do not commit crimes, but when I see what's being brought up and brought into the various ports in Norway it is my impression that Norwegian fishermen generally adheres to the rules of today. There will always be rotten eggs on both sides of the border.


                The law of Norway's territorial waters and contiguous zone
                2.3 Fishery Limit

                Norway created a special fishing limit of 12 nautical mil in 1961. A new and more detailed fishing border law was adopted in 1966, by Act of 17 Jun. 1966 No. 19 This establishes a fishing limit of 12 nautical mil around mainland Norway.

                Within the fishing limit, it is illegal for anyone who is not a Norwegian citizen or equal to a Norwegian citizen to engage in fishing or hunting. An important exception is the Skagerrak area, see Article 2 of the Convention of 19 December 1966 between Norway, Denmark and Sweden on mutual access to fishing in the Skagerrak and Kattegat up to four nautical mil from the coast. An extension of the territorial sea to 12 nautical mil will not affect this right, which will be maintained unchanged by virtue of the Convention.

                When Norway created 12 mile fishing limit in 1961 was the area around Jan Mayen, by Crown Prince Regent's Resolution of 30 June 1955 decided that the outer limits of the fishing area would be 4 nautical mil from the baselines. It is the intention to repeal these regulations in connection with the commencement of the Act on Norway's territorial waters and contiguous zone. In the fishing zone of 200 mil around Jan Mayen are a number of other states granted fishing rights through the quota arrangements. An extension of territorial waters to 12 nautical mil (and therefore the area for the fishing ban for foreigners) will involve a certain geographical boundary of the party's ability to utilize the allocated fishing rights. This will however be fully consistent with international law. It can not be seen to have practical significance, since satellite tracking data show that foreign fishing activity has taken place outside the 12 nautical mil.

                If an extension of territorial waters to 12 nautical mil, the need for a fishing limit of 12 nautical mil lapse by this geographical area will be absorbed by the territorial sea. It is proposed to change the fishing boundary Act of 1966 to apply to territorial waters with the maintenance of the substantive provisions.

                Certain laws and regulations show today at 4 nautical mil that the rules limit the scope. Such rules are not affected by an extension of the territorial sea.

                  Just to clarify that there are some eggs that are far more rotten than the others.

                  Info from an.no by Vibeke Madsen

                  Coarse fishing scam
                  Thief fishing in closed areas, dumping of large quantities of fish and gross under-reporting. According to the Coast Guard, this year's cases much rougher than before.

                  The number of cases is approximately the same level as last year (2008), but we see that conditions the boats are upset about is far more serious this year. We have boats that have fished in closed areas and we've had three serious dumping cases. In addition, we identified several extensive under reporting, "said fisheries officer Nils-Olaf Larsen at Coast Guard Squadron North.

                  Worst from the south
                  So far this year (2009) the Coast Guard in the northern upset 17 foreign fishing vessels. It's the same number of boats that were taken throughout the year. Of these, eleven Russian, but according to Larsen, it is not the Russians who are responsible for the worst offenses.
                  In August, we include a Portuguese boat that was arrested for having under-reported 162 tonnes of cod. The boat got a fine of 4.1 million, which they accepted on the spot, "said Larsen. And the case is not unique. According to the fisheries officer has for the last six-seven years seen that particularly Spanish and Portuguese ships commits gross underreporting.
                  It means simply that they steal the fish, and it is these issues we consider as the most serious, "said Larsen.

                  19 Norwegian boats reported
                  Coast Guard Squadron North have inspections in the waters from Rørvik and north. Although they have had fewer vessels on the water this year and the number of checks has declined somewhat, they have thus made as many oppbringelser. Whether this means that the Coast Guard could have been even more if we had more boats on the water, Larsen will not say anything about.

                  There is no doubt that attendance is important if you want the number of crimes down, "says Larsen. When it comes to Norwegian vessel, the Coast Guard reported a total of 15 fishing boats, against 19 all last year.
                  - When it comes to these matters, it is largely a matter of formal violations - that is, errors in the mesh size, layout, and the sort, "said fisheries officer Nils-Olaf Larsen.

                    Only a couple of key word; "Smuthullet" & "Toothfish".
                    A number of boats that is engaged in fishing in un-controlled international water, like "Smuthullet", are actually Norwegian controlled, but registered elsewhere.

                    I remember one being apprehended some years ago, (for having strayed into Jan Mayen EEZ, I think) which was registered with home port La Paz, Bolivia. Russian crew but Norwegian "Boss" on board.

                    As for the "Toothfish", it may not be many Norwegian owned or operated boats left in that game, but that is because the penalty for being caught is now very large and there isn't all that much Toothfish left to catch.
                    Any longliner caught fishing illegally within the French EEZ around Kerguelen Island are take to Reunion, stripped and used for target practice.

                    PS> When I said "Norwegian waters", I was referring to Norwegian EEZ, NOT to territorial waters, where foreigners are not allowed to catch fish, except as tourist.

                      That is what I call real punishment. Just like it!

                        Thanks for the inputs on fishing in and outside Norwegian waters. Interesting reading because I suddenly understand how little I really know about that subject.

                        And the target practice sounds like a pretty good punishment. Almost like death penalty..

                                Thank you for all the updates in this thread Asimut. It's very enjoyable being able to see the activity in Tromsø, through your sharp images.
