The polarbear had heard about the Fish market in Bergen and came down – all the way from Svalbard! Here he got a job as a security guard and was possibly paid with ‘left overs’ from the current sales! 🙂

    The Fisketorget is a wonderful place to see what the Norwegian seas have to offer the Norwegian people. One thing that really surprised me when we visited in 2009 was the place selling seal and other pelts. They were draped in fair-sized stacks over saw horses- so beautiful, but a little… sad to a foreigner not used to seeing them. Are these animals overpopulated in the area or pests for the commercial fisherman, or is the meat a common food so that the pelts may as well be used, too? I’m sincerely curious about the reasons for them being there.

      Hi Dawn,
      As far as I know there are few Norwegians eating seal meat, but – you’re absolutely right about ‘being a pest’ up and down the coast for the fishing industry. Not only do they raid the nets but just as often they fasten in the nets themselves. And being rather heavy an strong animals, they do a lot of damage. They also eat a lot of fish out of the nets and also the younger fish in our coastal waters. And they are so plentyful in some areas that they just have to be reduced somewhat. And when they’re shot the pelts will, of course, be utilized. However, the seal hunt of yesterday, where specialized ships probed the polar ice for months, has been heavily reduces for many years ago.
      In Norwegian waters there excist only a limitid hunting on two or three types of seals, and that’s probably what you have seen. Some ships are still hunting seals in the russian zone of the polar sea and a few ships are doing the same in the waters surrounding Greenland.
