Five vessels landed 346 boxes of fish/prawns/squid, up on 160 boxes the week before.

However, there was a dramatic drop in the number of bags of clams brought ashore, last week yielding none at all compared to 213 during the previous seven-day period.

Taking their catches to the quayside were Our May, Lily Oak VI, Boy Sam, Chloe Ella and Deeside.

Two cargo boats called at Buckie last week, the first being the Dutch-registered MV Amadeus Amethist, importing 2460.2 tonnes of soya from Rotterdam on October 16. She sailed light to Wilhelmshaven on October 20.

Next in was the MV Frisian Ino (Dutch) which imported 1991.14 tonnes of malt from Waterford on October 20th before sailing light to Ghent two days later.
