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.
High activity for the North Sea herring, while for Atlanto Scandic herring it is nearly over, - especially for the smaller vessels.
