European seabass in january

Published by at 5:26 pm under Fish and fishing

The european seabass (Dicentrarchus labrax) is not a common fish i Norwegian waters. Still every summer some seabass get caught in the Norwegian fjords. The pictures below show a rare catch of european sebass in January. This is an unusual catch as the seabass normally seek out of the fjords and into the Atlantic Ocean during fall.

The fish seen on this pictures were caught by using a net. Photo: Kåre Grønsnes

    The fish looks a little thin. Is this totally a stray, or are you having a warmer than usual winter?

    The first part of this winter was warmer than usual but it is still unusual to find species like European seabrass within the inner coastline. The fish shown in the post ended up on a dinner plate and according to the fisherman it was a very good meal.
