The Norwegian broadcasting service – nrk, has just published an article about the banning of fishing for blue halibut and crabs in an area extending from the lofoten islands to Bodø because of toxins found in the animals – dioxins,pcbs and heavy metals.
the article – http://www.nrk.no/nyheter/distrikt/nordland/1.10841583
Another article talks about release of heavy metals inland of that area, slipping into a big fjord, from a mining operation – wonder if the two are connected?
Here in Hustad ive been getting a number of cod with black, or very dark brown livers – naaah, surely not – no poisoning here. of course i would feel a lot safer if i know the seweed beds were undisturbed – but the sea bed has been raked bare in the area – there is nothing here to remove any toxins
