The Lofoten Islands have a long history of fishing. For more than a thousand years, the archipelago has been a hotspot for cod fishing, or Lofotfishing (Lofotfiske) as it’s also called.
During winter, there is especially lots of fish in the sea. Every March, huge cod populations travel southwards from the Barents Sea, and stay at the Lofoten Islands to spawn. Every year, they unleashed a fishing bonanza among the Norwegians living on the barren islands. The fish was dried and transported to Bergen, where it was traded with the rest of Europe.

Bonitas imágenes Annemarie. Nosotros cuando hay "bacalao skrei” lo cocinamos. Los pescan en las islas Lofoten, de Noruega. Quien tenga la oportunidad de comprarlo que no lo dude, es el bacalao más sabroso de todos. “Skrei” en noruego significa “pez nómada”.
