BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Union and Britain have not yet found a deal on sharing access to fishing waters and markets to sell their catch after Britain 's transition period in the EU ends this year, the European Commission said on Tuesday.

Fisheries, along with state aid rules for British companies and ways to solve future disputes between the 27-nation bloc and the Britain are the main stumbling blocs for a trade deal.

"We have not yet found a solution on fisheries," a Commission spokesman told a regular news briefing.

"We are not there yet, a lot more work remains to be done," he said talks under way in Brussels this week were very intensive and on all topics.
