Norges Sildesalgslag is an economic interest organisation for
norwegian fishermen of pelagic species, and the leading marketplace
for all first-hand sales of pelagic fish in the northeast Atlantic.
NSS has a central role inside pelagic sector.
Best week this season for blue whiting from west of
Ireland; more than 60.000 MT. More quiet for the capelin in
the Barents Sea and moderate also when it comes to Atlanto Scandic
herring at the North-western coast.
High activity for the blue whiting and still some activity for
the Atlanto Scandic herring at the west coast of Norway.
The capelin fishery at Iceland is over, while the capelin in the
Barents Sea is fairly absent so far.
Changes in prices is because of the relationship between canola
oil and fish oil in Peru changed a bit. The new minimum prices for
raw material for fishmeal and oil use comes from Monday,
February 16, 2015
Another good week for the Atlanto Scandic herring and herring of
good size has started migrating into the fjords west of Tromsø.
More even activity in the south.
Finally the blue whiting
appeared far west. For capelin at Iceland it is nearly over - and
the first vessel is in operation in the Barents Sea. Several
deliveries of mackerel from foreign vessels last week.
We've had a good week of capelin fisheries bu Iceland but no
vessel have found blue whiting west of Ireland thus far. The
fishery for Atlanto Scandic Herring has moved south, we've
had a decent week of foreign mackerel being landed in Norway and no
vessels have so far gone north to look for capelin in the Barents
