In order to strengthen Ísfell’s position in the pelagic trawl market in Iceland and Greenland, the company has reached an agreement with Fishering Service in Kaliningrad for the manufacture of trawls and bags for pelagic fishing. Fishering Service is one of the leading companies in the world in the manufacture of pelagic trawls and bags.
The company was established by Andrey Fedorov in 1993. He had previously been employed as a master net-maker on board trawlers and has extensive experience of everything relating to fishing and fishing gear. Since its establishment, Fishering Service has manufactured more than 5,000 pelagic trawls and bags in a range of sizes.
According to Dimitry Fedorov, Fishering Service’s Sales Manager, the company has an excellent inventory of goods that they use for the trawls. Dimitry stated that “we can manufacture an average-sized pelagic trawl in about two weeks, and the transport to Iceland can then take 7–14 days”, he explains.
Fishering Service employs approximately 150 employees, working in some cases on two shifts. Fishering Service manufactured around 250 pelagic trawls and bags last year which they sold in various parts of the world. One could say that there are trawls from Fishering Service in all principle fishing areas in the world, and the user list of vessels is quite long.
Very nearly every type of pelagic trawl
Fishering Service was partnered with Atli Jósafatsson and Guðmundur Vigfússon in Iceland as of 2008. Guðmundur and Atli, however, no longer work with Fishering Service. It was, therefore, a logical move for the company to find new partners in Iceland. The agreement means that Ísfell will be responsible for the sale and maintenance of trawls from Fishering Service in Iceland and Greenland. In addition, the companies will collaborate on developing fishing gear.
“Fishering Service manufactures almost every type of trawl, for all kinds of fishing, such as cod, saithe, redfish, mackerel, sardines, sardinella, hake, hoki, herring, capelin and krill, to name some species”, says Dmitry. “The trawls, moreover, come in various arrangements of triangle or hexagonal meshes, depending on the species to be fished.”
