Policy: Finnmark fishermen have announced that they will block ports in Finnmark on Tuesday, to show opposition to the processing of the quota notification. Hammerfest, Honningsvåg and Vardø are on the list, reports NRK.

That could cause trouble for Hurtigruten. If a possible blockade will affect the company’s sailings in Finnmark, they will consider canceling certain calls.

– If there is a risk of major delays or that we cannot leave the port as planned, we may unfortunately have to cancel calls to limit the inconvenience for our guests and customers, says press officer Øystein Knoph.

To Finnmarksposten says Knoph that they do not take a position on the political discussion, but that they must deal with the relevant information they now have access to.

In Honningsvåg, it is the northbound ship MS Polarlys that may be affected, while for Hammerfest it is the southbound MS Nordkapp that may be damaged.
