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.
A low volume of sand eel last week, caused by stop in operations, - and – this season’s very first catch of North Sea herring registered.
Less sand eel - and in general low activity last week.
Good catches of sand eel at the West Bank.
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.
17.500 MT of blue whiting during the Easter week, - and some activity for mackerel to be penned in.
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
