At a meeting in London yesterday the nations engaged in this fishery agreed to reduce the  quantity from 500 - 600 thousand tons in 2010 to 40,000 tons in 2011, reports with reference to Iceland Seafood International.

Iceland´s share will go down from close to 90,000 tons in 2010 to 7,000 tons in 2011.  This is in full agreement with the recommendation of ICES (International Council for Exploration of the Seas).  Poor yearc-lasses in recent years are blamed for this deplorable state of affairs.
