The course of fisheries as per week 14/2018
Another good week for blue whiting.
Again - the blue whiting fisheries were the main activity; 29.415 MT last week.
The main volume was caught in the area close to St. Kilda. One catch was taken in the vicinity of Porcupine, while two catches were taken further north in the EU zone, - and - a more tiny catch (250 MT) was taken near the Faroe Islands. The total catch quantity was delivered in Norway and Denmark.
The prices have tended somewhat down lately.
The catching of mackerel being penned-in has started with 8 MT last week. The size is highly variable, from 160 - 350 g. So far just one penned-in catch is sold.
Two penned-in catches totalling 34 MT from Tysvær were sold last week to a reasonable price.
Atlanto Scandic herring
A small penned-in catch (800 kg), average weight 270 g, were taken near Bømlo Island last week and sold at minimum price.
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.
A "marvelous" week for capelin in the Barents Sea, but stormy for the blue whiting vessels.
