The course of fisheries as per week 26/2018
Still difficult conditions for the North Sea herring, - though, the best week so far with more than 20.000 MT registered.
The fishing started by the beginning of the week West off Vesterålen, and the migration southwards keeps a fairly high speed.
To slow down catching activity, the sales organisation on Wednesday decided to initiate a system for letting vessels wait between 72-108 hrs. following more detailed regulations.
In the forth coming week high activity is still expected from coastal vessel and trawlers. Several purseiners have, however, decided to prepare for the capelin or blue whiting.
We like to remind you about this from the Sales Regulations;
Lower minimum prices for raw material for meal and oil purpose
