Saltstraumen has a unique fauna and a very rich under water life. 

On these pages we would like to show you some of the wonderful things you can see here in the water, north of the Arctic Circle.

We at the Saltstraumen DiveCamp wish to preserve this fantastic fauna and at the same time make people aware of the sensitive and beautiful life up here in a safe manner as we go diving.

We follow and implement the local No-Hunting Policy that the local divers and dive-clubs agreed on since a few years back.  The No-Hunting Policy aim especially to protect the three bottom living fishes; the Halibut, the Anglerfish, and the Wolffish. Saltstraumen with its Oxygen rich water is the perfect place for the Wolffish to take care of their eggs and so enrich the whole area with new Wolffishes.

Carl von Linné

(13. mai 1707 - 10. jan 1778)

Carl von Linné was a Swedish botanist, physician, and zoologist, who laid the foundations for the modern scheme of binomial nomenclature. He is known as the father of modern taxonomy, and is also considered one of the fathers of modern ecology. Many of his writings were in Latin, and his name is rendered in Latin as Carolus Linnæus (after 1761 Carolus a Linné).
