Scottish fleet Successfully Completes Annual Blue Whiting Fishery
The Scottish fleet has successfully completed its annual blue whiting fishery in the North Atlantic to the West of Ireland and Scotland.
About a quarter of the Scots pelagic fleet engages in the fishery each year, with catches landed into Killybegs in Donegal, and Peterhead. Some of the Peterhead landings were destined for the human consumption market in West Africa.
The Scottish Pelagic Processing Association discusses the importance of the annual blue whiting season to the Scottish fishing industry.
