Even higher volume of Atlanto Scandic herring compared to the foregoing week, and as much as 565 MT of sprat, mostly from the Trondheim Fjord.
Good weather in the Norwegian Sea resulted in this year’s best herring week, - and the good news; sprat catching in the Trondheim Fjord.
Fish-auctions guarantee free competition and equal playing fields for all parties in the race for access to valuable fish-resources
This year’s mackerel quota is close to be finished, while the Atlanto Scandic herring fisheries stopped last week due to weather.
Recent changes show -0,21% in the fish meal indicator and 2,85 % in the oil indicator after the correction in the comparison between fish oil and rape seed oil.
Still a lot of mackerel at Shetland, and this season’s best week for herring in the Norwegian Sea.
