Southern Norway has a long tradition of fishing and there are mostly small, family-owned companies that operate a fishing boat. The industry is constantly developing, both when it comes to working methods, equipment and vessels.
Fiskebrygga in Kristiansand was opened in 1936, and contained both cold storage, a fishing hall and the opportunity to buy fresh fish and shellfish in the fish bazaar. This is still the case today, and the area has become an attractive place for the city's residents and tourists.
It is mostly fish and prawns that are delivered to fish receptions in the area, in addition to various shellfish. All fishing in our harbor district must be registered with Fiskehav.no. On this website you can see the types and quantities of fish that have been delivered recently (only in norwegian).
In Kristiansand and Lindesnes, most of the fish are unloaded across our berths (see list below) and Geiterøy on Flekkerøy. This berth is owned by Kristiansand Næringsselskap (KNAS) and is connected to both a privatly owned fish reception and a seine finer. Skagerak Trål and Notbøteri is one of the few on the coast in southern Norway. Both Norwegian, Swedish and Danish fishermen come here to have old fishing gear repaired and new ones made.
At Geiterøy, it is possible for fishing vessels to deliver marine waste they pick up from the sea.
