Today marks the start of the lobster season here in West Sweden! Sweden’s west coast is full of life right now and people have taken time off work to go out fishing. Old and young, everybody wants to catch the black gold sea of the sea – lobster. Ever since 30 April, locals have been waiting to fish for lobster again and finally it’s time! According to fisherman Lennart Johansson – who is from the island of Styrsö in the Gothenburg archipelago – the start of the lobster season is the west coast’s equivalent to elk hunting, another big event in Sweden.
