Summer in Lofoten
After a season of intense fieldwork as a marine mammal biologist in Vestfjorden, Lofoten I have now returned home to Troms again and it is time to sum up some of the impressions.
It was a long field-season with many wonderful and magic moments out at sea, including encounters with both our smallest cetacean, the Harbour Porpoise and our largest, the Fin Whale, Unfortunately there were also too many encounters with whalers and the sound of the harpoon going off in the hunt for the minke whale as Norway is still one of the few whale hunting countries in the world. The small selection of pictures below will have to speak for themselves.
