New prices relative to raw material for meal and oil purposes
Prices relative to raw material for meal and oil purposes as from April 30 2018
Harsh weather has the last couple of days led to less successful fishing compared to last week's results - and the week before. But weather is expected to improve.
The forecast is promising and vessels are prepared for the
Atlanto Scandic herring in the Norwegian Sea as well as closer to
shore up north, tells Kenneth Garvik, sales manager by Norges
The fishing for penning-in herring has not yet started as the herring so far has not migrated into the areas in quantities suitable for this type of catching.
In the North Sea some vessels are operating for North Sea herring and mackerel.
Two vessels are also chasing the horse mackerel and are hoping the new moon next night to give a positive effect.
After having finished fisheries for herring and mackerel, several trawlers now are operating for Norway pout at "Fladen".
It has been a change in the fishmeal indicator of -2,69 %, the factor between fishoil and rapeoil is reducedfrom 66 to 59, and the oil-indicator is -9,32 %. There will consequently be changes in the minimum prices of raw material for fishmeal and -oil purpose. The new minimum prices for raw material used for fishmeal and -oil apply from 02.04. 2018.
The catching of capelin in the Barents Sea is now terminated, but it was another splendid week for blue whiting.
Pelagia is established in Skagen, Denmark, producing marinated herring.
This season’s best week for blue whiting – and the capelin quota, close to be taken.
On April 3, 2018, the Norwegian Coastal Administration (NCA) will introduce new booking regulations for ordering marine pilots. The regulations will thus be formalized and merged into one set ? Regulations on Compulsory Pilotage.
The season for capelin in the Barents Sea towards an end, but still high activity for blue whiting – if weather is cooperative.
