The Faroe Islands Podcast

The Faroe Islands Podcast explores the news, culture, and politics of the Faroe Islands... and it's in English so you can understand it.

Oct 24, 2013

This week, we take up the dispute between the Faroe Islands and the EU regarding fishing quotas. The EU has banned the import of certan types of fish after the Faroes set their own quota for herring and mackerel.

We'll talk to Kate Sanderson, the head of the Faroese Mission to the European Union, Bjorn Kunoy, a doctor of international law, and British MP Alistair Carmichael about the thorny issue of fishing quotas.

And then, just so it doesn't get too depressing, we stand out in the rain in Torshavn and listen to some church bells.
