Now that's a crab.....Kirkeness northern Norway
We went crabbing today at 1pm, it was already dark! Only three hours of real daylight today despite crystal clear skies and minus 20C.
Fished from snow mobiles travelling over a frozen fjord, large square cut in the ice and crab nets dropped this morning by the guide who took us out....the catch, 13 or 14 king crab, we only took five to feed the ten people on the trip and even then there was heaps left over. Steamed fresh they were absolutely stunning, sweet, full of meat and a meal fit for a king. Add this one to your bucket list.
By way of interest this crab was never a native of the fjords but were introduced by the Russians in the 70's, they now threaten the native cod fishery so are actively hunted.
