The fishing industry on Læsø
A small group of fishermen and other locals wanted back in time to ensure better sales opportunities for the local fishermen and at the same time develop and strengthen the job situation on the island. Today, the fishing industry has developed into one of the world's largest exporter of Norway lobster. For the fishing industry on Læsø, the Norway lobster fishery is today the primary task and from the island, Norway lobsters are sent out to customers all over the world.
The Norway lobsters are fished by local boats that catch the fresh lobsters. The lobsters are caught by the boats immersing a net in the water, the net sliding down to the seabed, whereby the live lobsters are collected. The lobsters are processed immediately after the boats arrive at Læsø Fiskeindustri.
