    I came across your blog and was very interested. The only thing that is a bummer for me is that you don’t have any archived posts that I could read. It would be nice to have that so I could read your blog from the beginning…I think your blog is great and it would interest me to read the article and stories you wrote about in the past.

    If you do have an archived section, please let me know where it is or what to click on to go there.

    Thank you and have a good day,

    I too love to fish- beach/ shore fishing in south of UK and lake fishing in France. I wish I had a boat for proper sea fishing though, then maybe I’d have better luck at catching some- we don’t seem to have a lot of fish left around the southern UK beaches. plenty of wrass though :(

    Hey, I couldn’t find where to drop the entrecard thing on your site- am I going mad?!

    Dear Magnus,

    There are not many weblogs about marine subjects. I like your weblog and will visit in regularly.
    The only time I visit Norway was many years ago. I made a boat trip and meet Spermwhales. It was very special to be so close with this animals.
    I saw you add me as a friend in blogcatalog. Thank you for that.

    Best regards,

    Hello Magnus,

    This is a very interesting blog. If you would like to exchange links please drop me a note.

    Hi Magnus,

    I really like your blog! I discovered it some time ago but had never written anything here.

    I’m trying to start my own blog about fisheries management but haven’t had much success this far. Anyway, I just made an entry about your blog and I thought I could come here and say hi.

    If you want to check it, here’s the link

    Is there any possibility to have link exchange with your blog? Thanks.

    Hello Magnus, I’m currently writing my thesis about shark finning and I was wondering if you could help me with a link to some shark fishing statistics for norway? I haven’t been able to track down any reliable data yet. I’m aware that this is a lot to ask, but perhaps you know a source :) best regards,lorenz

    Hi Lorents. I have an illustration showing the Norwegian fishery for porbeagle. Hope it can help.

    Not sure what you know about salmon farming in Norway. Came across this article over here on the west coast of Canada – from the Irish Times.

    My name is Megan and i am a commercial salmon seiner from Alaska. I am visiting norway with my husband whose family is Norweigan, and i was looking for a way to visit a Norweigan seine boat or learn more about salmon seining in Norway, or herring seining? Can you contact me about a way to learn more. We are in the Trondheim area right now.

  20. adminon 24 mar 2010 at 3:10 pm

    Hi Megan!
    Well, I don’t know any fishermen in the Trondheim-area. What I do in such situation is to visits harbours in the area. It would then be easy to find fishermen to talk with. Maybe they could give you the information you are looking for.

    You said the magic word… Fishing

  23. Jonathanon 11 aug 2012 at 1:02 am

    Excellent page! I like the way you’ve combined a variety of subjects related to fish all in one. Everything from fishing to eating fish and even some interesting posts on some very odd fish!

    I love it.
