Ågot Ltd is a vessel operator in Klaksvík, with one ship, M/S Ågot. The ship is 333
GRT and is equipped with both long-lines and nets. Long-line fishing is mainly from
October to March, the catch being mostly cod and haddock. For the most part the cod is
salted, but part of it and the haddock are prepared at the local fish-processing plant.
M/S Ågot also fishes at greater depth for ling and tusk, which are also prepared at the
local fish-processing plant.
Net fishing, practiced from March to October around the Faroes, is mainly for Greenland
Halibut. It is processed into fillets which are sold to Europe and Asia. Greenland Halibut
is a top quality product which is favoured in both Europe and Asia.
The crew of the Ågot are highly skilled and ambitious; acknowledging the stringent
quality demands on the international market, they make it their main aim to deliver a high
quality product to the processingplants.
