Faroese management in the balance
‪Eleven years ago I wrote on this page: "During 1994-95, the Faroese fisheries have been managed by the quota system, introduced due to Denmark’s pressure and local compliance. The Faroese people, however, soon perceived both the operation and consequences of this system as leading towards economic, social and with – over 90% of the country’s foreign trade coming from fishing - a national debacle. Consequently, the Faroese government decided to get rid of the quota system. The price to pay was leaving the EU system, which as it now appears was hardly a mistake."‬
