HB Grandi: Searching for herring off the west coast / October 21, 2016 11:12
HB Grandi’s pelagic vessels Venus and Víkingur were in the beginning of the week steaming to grounds off the west of Iceland to search for Icelandic summer-spawning herring in amounts worth fishing on in the next few days. According to Víkingur’s skipper Albert Sveinsson, a third vessel, Skinney-Thinganes pelagic vessel Ásgrímur Halldórsson, is also expected to show up after sailing from Reykjavík, reports www.megafishnet.com with reference to the company.
‘We are off the Ísafjörður Deep at the moment, and on Monday we were landing a small amount of blue whiting in Vopnafjörður. We searched for blue whiting off the south-east along with Venus, but there wasn’t much to be seen and we took only one tow each. Now we’re looking for Icelandic herring and Venus is here with us,’ he said.
