Herring Tradition: Fishing Herring Using Gillnets

Full Herring Nets - Herring Fishing in Karmøy Field
The fishery for Norwegian spring spawning herring has rich traditions along the western coast of Norway. Fishing herring with gillnets is a method used for hundreds of years. Some fishermen still use gillnets and get permission to sell herring in the harbor.

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