Iceland lowers mackerel quota in spat with EU

STOCKHOLM, Feb 3 (Reuters) - Iceland has lowered its mackerel quota in a move that could ease the risk of the European Union barring Icelandic fishermen from its ports in a row over mackerel fishing. Iceland's industry ministry said the north Atlantic island would fish 15 percent less mackerel this year than in 2012, taking the catch to 123,182 tons, to help assure sustainability of the stock.
