Denholm Seafoods is pleased to announce the start of the summer 2019 North Sea herring season.
Fishing vessel ‘Challenge’ arrived at the port of Peterhead on Monday 12th of August to offload its first catch of herring directly to Denholm Seafoods' quayside processing plant. The fish were located east of the Shetland Isles and the average size is 220g. Skipper Robert Tait reported an abundance of fish in the catching area, and of a very high quality.
Fishing vessel ‘Taits’ followed on with her first landing of the season on Tuesday 13th of August, with skipper Peter Tait reporting slightly larger fish in the fishing area further North.
Denholm Seafoods expects to be in full production until early September, processing various sizes of herring flaps and whole round herring for its customers in the UK and worldwide. The delicacy herring roe will be produced later in the season.
