Iceland’s Catch Much Poorer than Last Year

The total catch of the Icelandic fleet in September 2007 was less than 45,000 tons, almost half the catch for September last year. According to the Directorate of Fisheries, the value of the catch hasn’t been lower for decades.

The Norwegian-Icelandic herring (Atlanto-Scandic herring) showed the greatest difference in the catches between September 2006 and 2007, 14,000 tons this year compared to 48,000 tons last year, reports.

In September 2007 the cod catch was 40 percent lower than in September 2006, a difference of just over 8,600 tons, and the same is true for most other demersal catches.
