The course of fisheries as per week 3/2018
Not a bad week – despite the herring stays deep.
The Norwegian Seafood Federation and
Norges Sildesalgslag had Friday
20 September discussions on minimum prices
for herring. The
parties did not agree.
NSS has decided to continue the current minimum prices
for NVG herring until further notice. Please
be adviced to Circulare 28/13 for further details:
Christmas coming up affects the activities. But some vessels fishing Atlanto Scandic herring is still in operation.
Strong winds hampered fishing operations.
High activity for the North Sea herring, while for Atlanto Scandic herring it is nearly over, - especially for the smaller vessels.
Record last week with more than 180 million individual herring being caught.
More than 37.000 MT of Atlanto Scandic herring last week - and some ocean sprat for consumption purposes.
Several challenges in the fisheries for Atlanto Scandic herring.
