In mid-November, the police in Finnmark seized over 800 kilos of illegally traded king crab claws and around 270 kilos of cod. The case is still under investigation.

The seizure in Vardø was carried out following a collaboration with the Norwegian Directorate of Fisheries. 

It has a total value of more than NOK 500,000.

King crab claws are highly sought after, and a commodity people are willing to pay a lot for. 

A man has now been charged with the illegal sale of king crab claws and cod.

“We are also investigating whether more people may be involved. We will try to find out where the king crab claws came from and where they were going,” police attorney Are Aarhus in Finnmark Police District said.
