Fishing herring – using gillnets

Published by under Fish and fishing

The fishery for Norwegian Spring Spawning Herring has rich traditions along the western coast of Norway. Fishing herring with gillnets is a methode used for hundreds of years. Some fishermen still use gillnets and get permission from the sales-organisation to sell herring in the harbour.

The film below was made west of Karmøy in March 2013. One fisherman had set the net at daytime, for only 20 minutes. Enjoy.
