Tuesday’s visit to Bergen Aquarium was a fascinating insight into the sealife around the shores of Norway and beyond. The first section I visited featured some of the fish and crustaceans that abound in the nutrient-rich waters of the North Atlantic and the Norwegian Sea.
For many of us we only see these species served up with chips in the UK or on a dinner plate elsewhere in Europe and North America, so it was amazing to see them up close in something approaching their natural habitat.
The waters around Norway are some of the planet’s richest fishing grounds with huge quantities of Cod, Pollack and flatfish along with many others being caught here. At least if they are in alive and well in Bergen Aquarium we can enjoy their many shapes, forms, colours and behaviours as they were meant to be.
