BRIM FLEET’S 2020 CATCHES AND CATCH VALUES

The company’s fleet landed a total of 128,000 tonnes in 2020, which is 11,000 tonnes less than the 2019 total.

Landings from the pelagic vessels are down approximately 7000 tonnes compared to the year before, due primarily to a lower blue whiting catch than in the previous year. There was no fishing for capelin in 2019 or 2020.

The freezer trawlers’ catches were similar as in 2019.

The fresher trawlers landed approximately 3000 tonnes less than in 2019, primarily due to the closure of the Norðurgarður processing plant, where production was suspended as equipment was renewed and repairs carried out to the building. The acquisition of Kambur hf last year, added longliner Kristján HF-100 to the fleet.

Overall catch values came to ISK18,054 million, representing an increase of ISK525 million between years.

The accompanying table shows catches and catch values for individual vessels and vessels classes during 2020 and compared against the previous year.
