Norway has always been a fishing nation and is one of the largest fishing nation in the world.
A long coastline and many fjords, Norway provides good conditions for abundant harvest from the sea.
But times are changing and the number of fishermen currently has reached a historic low.
10,235 people are fishing as their main occupation, while in 1950s there were over 68 000. In Oslo fjord there are only 16 vessels left. 6 of those are shrimp vessels.
And there is only one girl, Helene (23).
