The edible crab/brown crab (canser pagurus) is found in significant densities along the Norwegian coast all the way up to Lofoten. The typical crab season is from midsummer up to Christmas. For some parts of the country, the crab season lasts all year round.
The crab is fished by Coastal fishing boats using traps baited with fish to lure the crab. An effective boat with the proper arrangements for crab fishing, is served by two men that will keep 5 -600 traps. These boats can have daily catches of more than 1000 kg.
