FISHING FOR CRABS AND LOBSTERS

Lobster fishing in Skudeneshavn dates back to the 17.th. century, when English and Dutch buyers came here. The local lobster fishing took place in springtime. Around 1930 the fishermen could receive 1 NOK pr. lobster. This was a very good price considering that a workers wages in those days were only 2-3 NOK a day.

Crab fishing was also popular, mainly because crabmeat was good fish-bait. In the early 1900s, the canning industry in Stavanger made commercial crab fishing possible. The price paid then was 0,12-0,13 NOK pr. crabs.
