The course of Fisheries as per week 16/2017
The sand eel season has started, while for the blue whiting fisheries west of St. Kilda, there are just small quotas left for the vessels.
Norges Sildesalgslag has decided to change some of the routines for access to Extranet. Terms for access (level 2 with price information) will be affected
Byers who buy catches through Norges Sildesalgslag for at least 6 months per year, will (as a main rule) have all-year access, and no changes will be made compared with existing routines. However, some exceptions might may occur. These will be related to need for flexibility due to various seasonal activitiety.
The type of access (whole-year-round or periodic) will be evaluated and might be changed if there is a considerable future change in a buyer’s activity throughout a year.
It is also important to Norges Sildesalgslag to have an updated register of users with access to the companies' Extranet site. The purpose is to close the access for personnel who leave or changes their positions. All companies with access wil receive a letter where they are asked to update their list over approved personnell for access. The letter will also explain more in detail about reopening accounts for seasonal activity.
Letters are now being sent to buyers, a similar excercise will be done for access for people connected to vessels and vessel-owing companies
Changes may be made on your Extranet site (for company administrators) or by mail to Norges Sildesalgslag. Personnel with access type "company administration/" will in the future regularly be asked for to control and to updates when logging on to Extranet on www.sildelaget.no.
If you have questions or comments on this information, please do not hesitate to contact Norges Sildesalgslag.
55.000 MT of blue whiting last week
The blue whiting fisheries in the Atlantic at full speed.
Blue whiting fisheries west of Ireland well started, whilst the capelin fisheries near Iceland is over. – The same goes for Atlanto Scandic herring.
Very good week for capelin near Iceland. Moderate activity for herring at Møre.
Capelin catches near Iceland fairly good but weather dependent, - the very first catch of blue whiting this season, - first catches of Atlanto Scandic herring at “Buagrunnen” - and still some mackerel delivered by foreign vessels.
The Atlanto Scandic herring is on its move southwards. Good sized capelin at Iceland.
