Vónin purse seine nets in the lead!
The Caplin season in Icelandic zone has reached its end and Icelandic, Faroese and Norwegian vessels have been fishing for the the past two months. Three of the Faroese vessels, Finnur Fríði FD86, Jupiter FD42 and Tróndur í Gøtu FD175 have just finished their quota using purse seine nets from Vónin. The latest one was delivered for Finnur Fridi FD86 in January.
These nets are specifically made for the conditions and environment, which this fishery faces. The two months when most of the fish is caught - mid January to mid March - are very harsh and stormy with strong winds and raging seas. Thus, the nets need to be dimensioned accordingly with very heavy twine and large, strong floats. The fishing is also taking place in waters as shallow as 6 fathoms, so most of the net which is around 60 fathoms deep is on the ground. This also requires a very strong lower part of the net.
The feedback from the three vessels has been very good. "Finnur Fríði" for example, has caught almost 8000 tonnes with their 242 x 60 fathom net. One important thing in this fishing is to have good floatation on the nets, because the caplin drive them down. This results in a lot of fish escaping over the headrope when it sinks. "Finnur Fríði" could take more than 1000 tonnes in each shot without seeing the floats go down.
