New prices relative to raw material for meal and oil purposes
Prices relative to raw material for meal and oil purposes as from April 30 2018
55.000 MT of blue whiting last week
Last week activities were limited to the catching of blue whiting.
As a total 55.000 MT were caught, all of it from the fields west of Ireland. By the beginning of the week, the fishing was performed in international waters west of 16̊ W. As from Wednesday the catching moved into the EU zone. The catching was uneven, partly because of the weather, but also because the blue whiting was wide spread.
The prices have stabilized in an interval from NOK 1,43 – 1,50, being at the highest in Denmark. It has been up to 48 hrs. waiting by the plants in Norway.
It has been a change in the fishmeal indicator of -2,69 %, the factor between fishoil and rapeoil is reducedfrom 66 to 59, and the oil-indicator is -9,32 %. There will consequently be changes in the minimum prices of raw material for fishmeal and -oil purpose. The new minimum prices for raw material used for fishmeal and -oil apply from 02.04. 2018.
The catching of capelin in the Barents Sea is now terminated, but it was another splendid week for blue whiting.
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.
