Local fishermen must go out to the sea no matter the weather.

Fishing in Lofoten

The many fishing villages in Lofoten testifies the importance of fishing in the region. For centuries, life here has revolved around the sea and what it can provide. The sea is rich in fish no matter the season, but January to April is the high season. This is when the Arctic cod migrates from the north to spawn in the waters in the Vestfjord outside Lofoten and draws both Norwegian and international fishermen to the region to work on fishing boats. Apart from cod, you might also catch other fish species, like pollock or mackerel. Could a fisherman ask for more?
