Morgère to promote their popular range of trawl doors at Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition

trawl doorMorgère will be promoting their range of trawl doors at the Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition (25 – 27 September), which are proving popular with many Icelandic skippers for their versatility and consistently good catch rates.

Both the PV3L and V3 trawl door types will form the main focus of Morgère’s presence at the expo, where they will be exhibiting on the Isfell stand (D20), who is their Icelandic agent.

In recent months several Icelandic skippers have praised the performance of the PV3L door, including Skipper Guðmundsson Margeir of the Skinney SF who described the doors as being “…easy to shoot and manoeuvre” and are “powerful and stable”.

Ólafsson Sigurður, the skipper of the Sigurdur Olafsson SF, was equally impressed, stating: “Their size fits perfectly with my gear, and is effective and sits well, enabling me to use less warp length than before.”

The V3 door is also widely used in Iceland with its almost oval shape allowing a smoother passage over rocky seabeds. The doors are particularly successful for targeting groundfish and key features include a consistent spread and excellent stability, with the capacity for a very quick recovery.

Michel Dagorn, director for Morgère, said: “Icelandic skippers have for a long time recognised the benefits of using Morgère trawl doors, and their feedback over the years has proved incredibly useful for us in refining our designs to suit their particular requirements.

“We are looking forward to meeting with existing and new customers at the Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition. We are always impressed by the dynamism and innovation that lies at the very heart of the Icelandic fisheries sector.”
