What you catch at Lopphavet

Lopphavet is renowned for fabulous halibut fishery. The majority of our guests who visit Nuvsvåg to experience deep sea fishing are hoping to catch a big halibut. You can land halibut all year round but the season for the really big ones is from August to October.

Cod and pollock (the torpedo of the sea) are other species that are common to catch in our waters. As for the halibut, these can be caught all year round – but the main season for pollock is June – August.

There are many more species to catch, with frogfish, catfish and redfish being the more “exclusive” ones.
