In 1991, a new Netherlands’ fishery has been developed, directed at argentines Argentina spp., on the Porcupine Bank, around Shetland and the Outer Hebrides. As yet, there is no commercial demand for argentines, which is considered typical for todays fisheries policy. Blue Whiting Micromesistius poutassou is fished and kept in cold store, again since there is hardly any demand for this fish. Although an argentine fishery is not likely to affect seabird populations straight away, these developments are rather worrying.
