For mackerel and North Sea Herring there were no changes in minimum prices from the previous week since there was not enough quantity ( minimum 5,000 tonnes) to justify any changes
With last night’s registration of 2200 MT, which is to be delivered in Ellingsøy, Norway, the vessel from Shetland has delivered over 8500 MT in less than two weeks
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.
