NORWAY: subsidies for "extermination" fishing of king crab

The outgoing minister for Fisheries and Coastal Affairs, Ms Helga Pedersen has decided to set aside NOK 5 million for "extermination" fishing of king crab. The fishing will be organized by chartering vessels that will carry out a targeted fishing of this species.

According the the official press release the measure is intended to limit the spread of this alien species and the chartered vessels will be fishing for crabs with little commercial value.
