No hunting policy in Saltstraumen marine conservation area

Through many years of diving in Saltstraumen we have gained a great respect for the current and the life it feeds, both above and below water. This is a unique piece of nature, and the desire to ensure that it stays that way in the future grows stronger for each dive.

Some years back, many divers were hunting in Saltstraumen. A self-imposed ban on underwater hunting on wolf eel has meant that diving in Saltstraumen has for years been about experiencing and taking pictures, not hunting. We want to help keep it that way, and therefore have a no hunting policy at Saltstraumen DykkeCamp.

Saltstraumen Marine Park is not large, but it is a very important spawning area with a huge complex species diversity. Providing fishing life a respite in the protection zone will increase fish stocks throughout the immediate area.

Welcome to the Saltstraumen Marine Park, but respect our desire to preserve diversity. The only thing we bring up is experiences and beautiful pictures.
