Lofoten is one of the best places in the world for producing stockfish. The further west you go in Lofoten, the better – in Værøy and Røst, conditions are particularly favourable. Visiting the Lofoten Islands in May is an experience for both the nose and the eyes, when knolls and hilltops are covered with fully laden stockfish racks. The island residents open their arms and proudly declare, “That’s our money you see hanging there.”
Lofoten Viking is a large exporter of fresh fish.
