We import Norwegian herrings at this time of the year because British-caught supplies are variable in quantity and generally not enough to meet our needs. I cannot agree that the bulk of the Norwegian herrings are of poor quality. Most of them are used for kippering and kipperers are free to buy British or Norwegian herrings as they think best for their business.
