    Scallop war over: French and UK fishermen reach an agreement

    The French had hoped to end a loophole that exempts British boats smaller than 15 meters long, giving them first dibs at the main scallop sources off the French coast

    French and British fishermen agreed Monday to end their battle over access to scallop-rich waters in the English Channel, three weeks after the long-simmering conflict flared into a high-seas confrontation. The new deal is hoped to bring to a close the years-long “Scallop Wars” over fishing the prized mollusks in the fertile waters off the Baie de Seine area of Normandy in northwest France.
