When she was 16 her father, Arild, bought Katrine her own boat, the 36-foot OMA which she now operates around the waters of Lofoten, catching mackerel, herring and cod.
“I grew up being out on boats for ten years and couldn’t imagine having any other job. I love the work and my little vessel. It’s wonderful to be at sea because I find it relaxes me and I love the nature that surrounds me. I’d rather go fishing than shopping any day.”
