Dou you know how much does a cod weigh when it's dry?
Do you know where cod heads are sold and consumed?
Do you know the recipe for the local speciality - fried cod tongues?
You can learn all about cod at the Lofoten Stockfish Museum in the village of A. Even if you're not interested in fishing you'll find this little museum fascinating: the fishermen who will guide you through are really nice, knowledgeable and especially fun. They will show you how the fishing has evolved since the 800s - and tell you about their winter life - when the fishing takes place. Basically they talk you through daily traditional life... a peculiar form of traditional life.
