Rich deep sea fishing fields and different species
Senja has several hundred years of deep-sea fishing and fishing traditions to refer to and just as long, the island has been connected to Norway’s richest fishing grounds right outside the living room door to the many fishing villages. Although the number of active fishing villages today is somewhat reduced, deep-sea fishing and fish stocks are still the same and enormously rich in fishing resources and different fish species.
Much of the rich fish deposits on Senja are mainly due to the large deposits of plankton and the number of spawning grounds for fish in the immediate vicinity around the island and the fjord areas, created by varied mountains and seabed formations with many depths and grounds which in turn create a perfect basis for lasting sustainable fish stocks, such as cod, halibut, saithe, haddock, catfish, redfish, tusk and salmon.
In addition, there are rich trout stocks in rivers and streams and sea trout stocks.
