The cod fishery has very long traditions in Northern Norway, and has been back to the Stone Age as an important food source for the people who lived here in the north
Tromsø, which is almost 70 degrees north, would normally have a cold climate with ice-fjords large parts of the year, but fortunately it is not.
The Gulf Stream brings temperate water all the way from the Gulf of Mexico and up along the Norwegian coast, and in winter time the ocean temperature is mostly above 4 degrees Celsius.
Here on the threshold of the Arctic Ocean, which extends right up to the North Pole, there are very good breeding areas for different species of fish, and for centuries the cod has been the most important food source and source of income for locals. Organized fishing and export of cod dates back to the Viking era before the year 1000 here in the north. Dried cod - dried fish - was an important export article.
Outside Tromsø there are rich fishing banks where the winter cod coming from the Barents Sea to spawn, resides from late December to mid April each year. Otherwise throughout the year there are rich deposits of coastal cod that provide the basis for an exciting sport fishing. Along the Norwegian coast there is open water all year - only in some fjord areas where freshwater flows from the rivers, it can freeze during periods of winter.
This gives unique opportunities for deep-sea fishing for a large part of the year, and in this environment the largest cod and shrimp are the best. It is not uncommon for catches of large fishes between 15 and 30 kilograms in this area, and the largest taken on board M / V 'BigFisher' was 37 kilos.
