Capelin agreement signed

Iceland, Greenland and Norway have agreed on a distribution and management deal for capelin in the 2018-2019 fishing season.

The three met in London, UK on June 21 and signed a deal, which entails a change in the distribution of capelin reflecting biological conditions, said Norway’s government.

For Norway, this implies a decrease in the share from 8% to 5%. Access and fishing conditions will continue as before.

An initial total allowable catch (TAC) will be issued after the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea puts out its advice in November. A final TAC will then be set following a survey of pre-spawning capelin, usually conducted in January or February.
