Too Long; Didn't Read

The Common Fisheries Policy provides EU states with mutual access to each other’s fishing grounds but sets quotas based on catch figures from 40 years ago. Despite having the largest Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of all EU countries, UK fleets are restricted to relatively modest catches. The UK government was pushing to reverse this by proposing a “zonal attachment” model, where quotas would be carved up relative to the abundance of fish in each country's waters. I felt there was a story in the data that could add depth and detail to the narrative.
