February seining is under way with teams on the ice. Fish is coming, but ice conditions are challenging.

Snowchange winter seining team is harvesting vendace on the ice. Fish has been coming, but since end of January the conditions have turned harder. Slush ice combined with water on top of the ice and warmer weather affects the harvests.
