LUMPFISH SEASON STARTED


The lumpfish season started on Thursday and fishermen are heading out with their nets. Húsavík harbour is full of action those days even though the whale watching season has not begun yet.

The owner of Gentle Giants, Stefán Guðmundsson, comes from a long line of fishermen who have been fishing in Skjálfandi bay for centuries. Along with whale watching, he is an active fisherman together with his father and brother.

This year, lumpfish boats are allowed to go out 50 days during the season. There are a number of boats operating from Húsavík, three of them from Gentle Giants and Knarrareyri (Stefán’s family).

Here are some photos taken by Þorgeir Baldursson, one of the crew members on Aþena:
