Fish Flow Set To Start Again European Fish Trader Published: 06 June, 2003
FISH business through Shetland is being restored thanks to the ending of a strike in Faroe.
Late on Thursday night, employers and unions in Faroe agreed to a pay settlement that will see workers getting nine per cent more over two years.
The month long strike had brought public and commercial life in Faroe to a standstill.
The Faroese Smyril Line’s new vessel Norröna carries trailers of whitefish, mainly cod and haddock, to Lerwick from where the fish is taken by NorthLink ferries to mainland Scotland for processing, but this trade ground to a standstill because of the dispute.
