The above picture shows the number of salmon of one night net-fishing by one bag- net-fisherman on the Trondheim-fjord. The picture below shows the catches the same afternoon! Two salmon were just less than 20 kilos (44 lb) in weight.

Every year, thousands of salmon are caught in bag-nets on their way to the rivers in the Trondheim-fjord area, salmon that are far better off in the rivers.

The organisation "Elevene rundt Trondheims-fjorden" (ERT) or the "Trondheim-fjord Rivers", has offered the bag-net-fishermen NOK 70.00 per kilo (£5.80) as a compensation for not using their bag-net-fishing rights.
