Pelagisk Forening Requests the Redistribution of Blue Whiting Quota in EU Zone

Pelagisk Forening, the Norwegian Pelagic Association has asked the Directorate of Fisheries to consider whether there are grounds for redistributing zone access for the purse-seine group for blue whiting in Irish waters (EU waters).

Speaking to Norwegian fishing news outlet, Kystmagasinet, General Manager of Pelagisk Forening, Mariann Frantzen said, “We have been informed that there is more zone access than quota left, so we believe this should be possible.” 

She added that as Norway does not have the opportunity to fish blue whiting in British waters, therefore it is important that the zone access in the EU is used as best as possible. 

“We have therefore asked that any redistribution be assessed quickly,” she says.
