The annual winter herring fisheries along the coast of Moere og Romsdal is underway, with reports of big catches, good prices and high demand from buyers.

One vessel alone caught 600 tons of herring in one night, and at a price of more than NOK 3 per kilo, the catch was worth around NOK 2 million, the newspaper Vaart Land reports.

Since the beginning of January, a total of 135,000 tons have been brought ashore.

This is a big improvement over last year, when 47,000 tons were caught in the same period.
