Norwegian pelagic processor Brodrene Sperre's new NOK 100 million (€8.9 million/$9.7 million) pelagic plant remains on track, despite the logistical hurdles caused by the coronavirus health crisis.

Managing Director Inger-Marie Sperre told IntraFish sister publicaiton Tekfisk that construction is underway, and the project is still scheduled for completion by the end of July, and a production start date of September.
