New Börkur with new Twister trawl doors
Sildarvinnslan's new pelagic trawler arrived in Iceland on thursday and will they be spreading their trawls with a set of Vónin's new pelagic trawl doors. The Twister trawl doors, which have been used by Høgaberg and Tróndur í Gøtu have already proven to a have very high spreading power and fantastic stability where the vessels have been able to make impressive sharp turns.
2600 scores on scattered fish
Vónin’s 2600 metre trawl, a scaled-up version of the successful 2300 trawl, has been in use by a number of Faroese vessels this year, with Gøtunes (ex-Gitte Henning), Tróndur í Gøtu and Arctic Voyager all reporting good results, while a fourth Faroese pelagic vessel has also ordered a 2600 trawl...

Vónin’s 2300 metre pelagic trawl has been around for a while and has already proved what it can do for the Faroese, Icelandic, Norwegian, Russian and UK fishing vessels that have been using this gear. Now Dutch pelagic catchers have also been calling in Fuglafjørður to pick up these versatile trawls.

So far this year the faroese trawler Arctic Voyager is the pelagic trawler that has the highest catch of Blue Whiting in faroese zone. Arctic Voyager has all year been using the 2300 metres & the 2600 metres Capto trawls and two different designs of Blue Whiting codends from Vónin. They have expressed great satisfaction with these trawls and codends. When fishing west of Ireland they used the the well proven 2300 metres trawl, but as the Blue Whiting moved further north the Arctic Voyager switched to the 2600 metres trawl, which has a massive opening and is perfect when the fish gets more scattered...
