The course of fisheries as per week 26/2018
Still difficult conditions for the North Sea herring, - though, the best week so far with more than 20.000 MT registered.
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.
We like to remind you about this from the Sales Regulations;
Lower minimum prices for raw material for meal and oil purpose
