Prices poor

, by , in Fishing & Sea

The beginning of the week was quieter than usual at the markets.

Prices were equally poor and although better for haddock, cod and megrim were disappointing.

A representative from LHD said more fish was expected at the end of the week due to a poor forecast.

On the pelagic side, the Antarctic and the Adenia landed their fish in Denmark.
