No weight adjustment for water on landings regarding sandeel

Published: by Roar Bjånesøy

Norges Sildesalglag have asked the Norwegian Fishery Department to allow for 2% water adjustment on weight regarding landings of sandeel used for fishmeal and fishoil to harmonize with EU-rules. The department has said no. 

The reason for the decline is that Dansih authorities will not comply with the EU-rules and the Norwegian Fishery Department will therefore not change the current rules of not allowing adjustment for water on the sandeel landings.
