Picture of sjark fishing boat sailing in evening scenery in Northern Norway

March 4th, 2008 · 6 Comments


Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera March 4th 2008. Click image for larger view.
In this picture you can see a small fishing boat that is called “sjark” in Norwegian, sailing on the fjord. These small fishing boats are very typical for the fisheries on the coast in Northern Norway and I’m hoping that some day I will be doing fishing from a sjark too. They can be quite expensive to buy especially if you want to buy the boat with a quota for commercial fishing.
The spots over the boat and in the sky are seagulls and not dust spots on the camera sensor/lens 😉

Here are a couple of other pictures of fishing boats on the sea in Northern Norway:

    Small boats and big boats mean one thing to me, sea sick!
    But fishing out there looks so lovely 🙂

    I almost couldn’t find the little boat! My eyes are drawn to the cloud formation and the edges of the mountain in this one, it is very nice. 🙂
