Fish and The Antarctic

Fishing in The Antarctic

Cartographer: Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal

Norway is a big fishing nation and we are of course fishing in the Antarctic as well. Compared to other parts of the oceans the fishing around Antarctic is minimal. Let us hope that we have learned from the over fishing that we have done in the North Atlantic and do not repeat that in the extreme South Atlantic. That is where the fish is apparently, at the Atlantic 'corner' of the Antarctic.
