Total catch in June was 32 thousand tonnes

The landed catch of Icelandic vessels in June 2019 was 31.7 thousand tonnes which is a 33% decrease from June 2018. The decrease is mostly due to very little pelagic catch. Demersal catch decreased by 12% and flatfish and shellfish catches decreased as well, if compared with June last year.

In the 12 month period from July 2018 to June 2019 the total catch was nearly 1,080 thousand tonnes and has decreased by 15% compared with the same period a year earlier.

The value index in June is 17.1% lower than in June 2018.
