What is this? Aflafrettir?
Yes what is this, Aflafrettir?
this is a icelandic word and if we translate it then it is fishing news.
but i could not the use the word fishing news because there is company that owns this name.
This page Aflafrettir.is started in the year 2007, and in the year 2011 then this sister page started aflafrettir.com
on the icelandic version there are list of every boats in Iceland and each list is made per month and updated often to see
what boats fish the most per month ( like, seine, trawlers, line, gilnet, boats up to 8 tons and more)
The English version of aflafrettir, aflafrettir.com i have been trying to have also lists on the page for the boats in Norway
but it is pretty difficult because there are huge amount of boats and also often difficult to get the data's.
But i hope that in the year 2021 i can make a list per month just as i have been doing for test with the
list with lineboats under and over of 20 meters in Norway, like i did in November and now in December.
Also i have all fishing data's from The Faroe Islands and have been making list with the trawlers and pelagic ship.
But this is not the only think i want, i have been trying to get fishing datas from Denmark, UK, Scotland and Ireland to make also list
but that is more difficult, but i will continue to work on that
But who is me?
