Norwegian fishermen are getting better at reporting lost and standing fishing gear says the Norwegian Directorate of Fisheries ahead of the autumn clean-up cruise.
“After last week’s record week of 28,800 tonnes, we got “only” 9,800 tonnes in the journal this week,” writes Norges Sildesalgslag after the Norwegian fleet experienced a bad week on the North Sea herring fishery.
The Norwegian Fisheries Association supports the Directorate of Fisheries’ proposal to transfer 10 percent of the vessel quotas of cod to 2021.
The Norwegian North Sea Herring fleet reported a total of 28.800 tonnes of herring being recorded in the catch journal last week as the boats completed another succesful week
Fiskebat and the Norwegian Fisheries Association have reacted to the International Council for the Exploration of the Seas (ICES) advice for 2021 fishing quotas in the Barents Sea.
The Norwegian Fisheries Association describes the situation for fishing ports as serious and has asked for action to be taken before the situation becomes dangerous.
