Other Media | FiskerForum: Greenland's Successful live cod season

GREENLAND
Monday, July 20, 2020

Supplies of live cod from coastal fishermen have been so abundant that Royal Greenland’s factory and the wellboat used for live fish collection have struggled to keep up.

The live cod season has been so strong that factory trawler Sisimiut has been brought in to take some of the live cod, relieving the pressure on the company’s factory in Maniitsoq, which has a capacity to process between 300 and 400 tonnes per week.

‘Around a hundred fishermen currently have about 2000 tonnes of live cod in net cages along the coast, from Maniitsoq in the north to Paamiut in the south. As there is a lot of fish and these are long distances, the well boat Maniitsoq can’t keep up with transporting the fish to the factory in Maniitsoq.
