Atlanto Scandic herring is difficult to get - and less mackerel from western waters. Still no capelin quota at Iceland.
First catch of blue whiting west of Ireland, while for Atlanto Scandic herring it has been quite variable.
Finally catches of better sized herring west of Lofoten, and a lot of mackerel from west.
Still a lot of herring in Kvænangen and the Reisa Fjord. The availability of mackerel west of Shetland seems good.
Minimum prices of raw material for meal and oil purposes
A good start for coastal vessels up north, but moderate in the Norwegian Sea. Still some mackerel at Shetland by turn of the year.
