Norwegian purse seine boats must fish for capelin off Iceland with seines, while Iceland itself and other nations with which they share the capelin quota fish for capelin with trawls. In addition, Norwegian fishermen experience that they are limited in the areas they are allowed to fish in and the number of boats that can fish at the same time. Norway wants a change in this. Minister of Fisheries and Marine Affairs Bjørnar Skjæran has contacted his Icelandic colleague to discuss the matter.
