MailOnline reported that Britain to reclaim its waters after scrapping 1964 deal and is to pull out of a deal that allows European fishing vessels access to its waters, Theresa May is expected to announce.
The move would see the UK taken out of the 1964 London convention, which predates the establishment of the EU, and effectively give the country’s fishermen a fresh start after #Brexit.
Currently the agreement allows vessels from twelve other European countries to fish within six to 12 nautical miles of the British coast.
If Britain were to leave the 1964 London convention it could mean a clean slate for British fishermen
A report published last October found that a whopping 58 per cent of fish caught in British waters between 2012 and 2014 were seized by EU fishing vessels.
Mrs May is expected to make the announcement within weeks, although, like Brexit, the country will have to serve a two-year notice period before exiting the 1964 deal.
Director of the campaign group, Fishing for Leave, Alan Hastings told The Telegraph the Government must serve its notice at the same time as invoking Article 50.

The fifth-generation Ayrshire fisherman said: ‘The fact that they haven’t already announced that is giving us the jitters.
‘So far they have used the right rhetoric but their actions have not lived up to that.’
The Prime Minister has told the European Council she will trigger Article 50 on Wednesday and the Government could still seek to secure a new fishing deal during subsequent negotiations.
