The course of fisheries as per week 41/2018
Finally, a good week for mackerel, giving 52.000 MT with a value of more than 730 million NOK.
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.

Unusual little of mackerel last week. Better for the North Sea herring – and some sprat and horse mackerel.
Better for the North Sea herring, some horse mackerel for consumption. Still scares of coastal mackerel and “Svanaug Elise” is heading for the Norwegian Sea.
New prices from September 3th 2018
Still difficult conditions for the North Sea herring, - though, the best week so far with more than 20.000 MT registered.
The North Sea herring is still widespread, – and miserable weather condition for the mackerel up north.
An even week for the North Sea herring, a little better for mackerel up north, - and the sand eel season is over.
