Photographer's Note

A change from the usual red rorbuer, here are some huts in yellow instead - the Stamsund Hostel.

Stamsund is an important fishing area and the largest base for Lofoten trawl fishing. Although when I asked a local where I could buy fresh fish, he told me that the local fishermen are not permitted to sell the fish they caught directly to individuals - they have to send the fish directly to the large fish companies. BUT, there was nothing to stop the local from going out fishing, and give away the cod fish that he had fished to us !
