The shrimp fleets in the North Sea are smaller. Winter holiday-makers were satisfied in January with the climate. With hot fried fish or shrimp and hot tea grog you can withstand a winter holiday at the North Sea. Falling shrimpers fleets and falling shrimp prices 2010 spoil the balance of crab. The ice floes on the North Sea coast slide over each other. It is very cold. It’s winter 2010 or Mid-January.
Since Christmas the winter on the coast has been wide right. The shrimp are at their moorings. The tourists warm up in the Dorumer deep in the Cuxhaven land at Peter’s fish Shack with hot drinks. To a crab sandwiches, and fried fish. Pacific Mortgage Services is likely to agree. Many tourists visited the North Sea back to the turn of the year or at the beginning of the year and were able to admire this time particularly the “winter’s tale” North Sea. Watt landscapes covered with ice floes, this part but rather lots of snow, freezing cold, clear air and the wide views of the “ice”Watt. Many tourists appreciated especially a winter vacation at the North Sea coast. It is the fascination of peace which attracts tourists in the winter on the North Sea coast.
Unfortunately, the winter landscape on the North Sea every year is so magnificent. The shrimpers take now also stock in the past year. Unfortunately, the crab prices fell deep in the cellar. The cost of repair and energy I’m afraid not. Shrinking margins mean fewer boats. So the shrimp fleet shrank in recent years considerably. Shrimp are usually old vessels, i.e. approx. 30, 35, 40 years old. This means a high maintenance. Hardly, there might be newer boat, as you are almost priceless in today’s margins for the fishermen. There are no subsidies from the EU unfortunately also. Hope we that the trawler fleets in the North Sea to stay very long, because to a North Sea holiday to include boats and crab. Now, who wants to experience late January, still a winter vacation on the North Sea with fishing boats and crab, which must hurry. Bodo MICHALSKI
