Vessels which unload 500 tonnes and more have, as previously announced, a two-day of waiting period after the delivery note has been signed.
The regulation was granted in accordance with of The Norwegian Law of Fisheries § 13.
This season’s first catch of capelin at Iceland, and the season’s first catch of blue whiting west of Ireland. And again, not too bad for Atlanto Scandic herring despite harsh weather.
Not a bad week – despite the herring stays deep.
The second week of the year; - not the busiest in pelagic, and by the end of the week, harsh weather forced the fleet to port.
A quiet start for Atlanto Scandic herring, some mackerel in western waters and a promising start for blue whiting near the Faroe isles.
Christmas coming up affects the activities. But some vessels fishing Atlanto Scandic herring is still in operation.
Strong winds hampered fishing operations.
