The Norwegian fleet has reported a good week again for herring fishing in the north on Week 46 of 2021 but mackerel catches have slowed down

Norges Sildesalgslag has reported a good week again for herring fishing in the north on Week 46 of 2021 but mackerel catches have slowed down significantly.

Roar Bjånesøy from Sildelaget reports:

NVG herring:

“27,000 tonnes of NVG herring were reported last week. Purse seines accounted for around 12,500 tonnes of the total quantity, the coastal fleet with direct catches for 11,000 tonnes and the lockers around 3,500 tonnes.

“Around 2,700 herring have been caught in the sea, while the rest are close to the coast. A number of larger catches have been taken in Fugløysundet on route 403 between Arnøya and Vannøy, where the average weight has been 300 grams for some of the catches. There are now around 73,000 left of the quota, including the flex quota. It is the coastal group that has the most left on this year’s quota.”
