PARIS (Reuters) - Talks between French and British fisherman over rights to catch scallops have ended in failure, France's agriculture ministry said on Wednesday, raising the risk of further tensions at sea.

French fishermen have accused the British of unfairly catching scallops in the Baie de Seine off the coast of Normandy during the summer, when French boats are banned from doing so because of French regulations aimed at protecting shellfish stocks.
