The course of fisheries as per week 37/2018
Unusual little of mackerel last week. Better for the North Sea herring – and some sprat and horse mackerel.

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
The North Sea herring is still widespread, – and miserable weather condition for the mackerel up north.
An even week for the North Sea herring, a little better for mackerel up north, - and the sand eel season is over.
Last week: The North Sea herring widespread, and the very first catch of mackerel in the north.
We like to remind you about this from the Sales Regulations;
Lower minimum prices for raw material for meal and oil purpose
The North Sea herring fisheries in progress, but results do not reflect the efforts made. The very first catches of matjes herring have been displayed in Egersund.
