Checking the traps in Norway — pat morss

We are in Tjome, Norway visiting Anne-Lise’s sister Berit and her husband Jan. This morning we followed him out in his boat checking his lobster traps. His private license allows him up to 10 individual traps and the commercial lobster season only lasts 2 months from October 1st to December 1st. Allowable size is between 25 and 32mm from tip of nose to end of tail.

Crabs this time
Lobsters in this one
Will be covered to avoid shock in winter air
Confirming legal length
Elastic bands on the claws
Ready for the pot
