17.500 MT of blue whiting during the Easter week, - and some activity for mackerel to be penned in.
The activity has been performed in an area 35 n.m. south-west of St. Kilda along a depth of 500 m onward to 70 n.m. south of St. Kilda. As a total 14 catches were taken with volumes from 260 – 2.300 MT; totaling 17.490 MT. One catch was delivered in Killybegs, one in Skagen and the remaining in Norway.
From a waiting time for several days by the beginning of the period, it is now close to no waiting at all for delivery. The prices; mainly from NOK 1,37-1,39.
Two catches last week; one at Bømlo Island and one in Tysvær; altogether 4,5 MT. One of the catches (3,5 MT) was sold as fresh, while the other so far is not yet sold.
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.
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
Another week with a high volume of blue whiting, - the best this season
