The Directorate of Fisheries warns of a high presence during this year's scree fishing. In a notification, it is stated that several teams of inspectors will have extended working hours during the period.

Director of Fisheries Frank Bakke-Jensen points out that it is a main task for the Directorate of Fisheries to ensure that the resource accounts are correct and that illegalities must be avoided.

"A correct resource withdrawal where we register the right species and the right weight is central to the entire resource control. Increased control efforts will help to fulfill the goal of sustainable and correct management of the community's resources. Effective and good resource control also contributes to more equal competitive conditions in the fishing industry", says Bakke-Jensen.

The checks this winter are based, among other things, on the National Strategic Risk Assessment that the Directorate of Fisheries prepares every year in collaboration with the Coast Guard and the sales teams.

¨This year we will pay particular attention to violations of the Participant Act and we will follow up on the landing obligation, in addition to checking that the resource extraction is correctly registered¨, says Bakke-Jensen.

In a press release on Tuesday, it is indicated that the cod fishery is very important for Norway, and in 2022, approximately 348,000 tonnes of cod will be landed at a first-hand value of close to NOK 9.5 billion.

Inspectors from all over the country

The Directorate of Fisheries explains that an extended inspection requires a good many more inspectors than those who would normally be assigned to inspections on the fishing grounds and at the reception facilities.

¨In order to make full use of the capacity, we will use inspectors from all over the country on various checks in Nordland and in Troms and Finnmark where fish are landed and processed during the winter¨, says Bakke-Jensen.

In addition, inspectors from several of the sales teams that sell whitefish will take part in selected checks this winter.


Every year, a national strategic risk assessment for fisheries control is made in collaboration between the Directorate of Fisheries, the sales teams and the Coast Guard. It is this risk assessment that forms the basis of the control offensive that is now being carried out.

In order to carry out as effective a check as possible, there is a separate field agreement between the Directorate of Fisheries and the employee organisations. The field agreement regulates working hours in such a way that the Directorate of Fisheries has great flexibility when the strategies are to be operationalised. There must be some unpredictability in where and when the inspectors will check the landing and reception of fish.

¨In short, we will thus be able to carry out checks anywhere at any time¨, says Bakke-Jensen.

In addition to several inspector teams on land, the Norwegian Fisheries Directorate's Maritime Service will be in place with three of its four vessels, including the new fast-moving MS Fjorgyn. The maritime service will primarily monitor the activity at sea, carry out gear checks, enforce the regulations for fishing and assist the inspectors who carry out checks when landing fish and reception checks.

¨Collectively, this will enable us to cover the entire control chain from the time the fish is taken from the sea until it ends up in storage in the fish reception centers¨, says Bakke-Jensen.
