Creatures of the Barents Sea: the mighty king crab (Honningsvåg)Date: Saturday 20 jul 2019 - Saturday 31 Aug 2019

Although the king crab is not an indigenous species, - it migrated from the Murmansk fjord in Russia - its presence has created a flourishing industry for the local fishermen.
by RIB boat, we will pull up the crab pot and check our catch of the day. Your guide will give you the chance to take pictures and hold the animals before going back on land for a little lesson in history and anatomy.
Finally, you will get to taste this exclusive delicacy in a traditional Norwegian way, with bread, mayonnaise and lemon.
