Atlantic wolffish, Anarhichas lupus
Atlantic marine life, Saltstraumen, Bodö, Norway

Atlantic wolf fish and shrimp (Anarchias lupus and Lebbeus polaris), NORWAY/SALTSTRAUMEN, BODÖ.Many wolf fish accommodate this shrimp species in their lair, eating titbits from the wolf fish’s favourite meal – sea urchins.The wrinkled blue-grey wolf fish is a highly-prized delicacy which grows extremely slowly and can live for decades. This makes them very vulnerable for the targeted fishing that is now taking place in the Atlantic. More than 80% of commercial fish stocks in European waters are thought to be over-fished.One third is at risk of being beyond recovery. We all need to try to be more responsible about eating only fish that is certified by the Marine Stewardship Council, MSC. Shouldn’t maybe all fish sold in restaurants and shops by law have to be from MSC-certified fisheries?
