The opening of the 700 year old Fish Market is so far my most important task as mayor of Bergen. The Fish Market has not only great value to Bergen, but it is one of the oldest and most visited tourist attractions in Norway, said the Mayor of Bergen, Trude Drevland, as she did the honors at  the official opening.

Quality, expertise and diversity - Our goal is to create an innovative and dynamic commercial seafood center for Bergen's local population and for tourists from home and abroad. We have high quality products and the expertise amongst our fish traders is almost unique. We are also fortunate that we have partners such as the Norwegian Seafood Centre and the Bergen Tourist Board. The total quality of the Fish Market in its new form makes the future look very bright, says The Fish Market manager, Bent Unneland.

Strong brands

In addition to the fish traders, Bergen Tourist Board and The Norwegian Seafood Centre are in place as new tenants.- The Fish Market is located in the heart of Bergen, and we could not get a better and more appropriate location, says Managing director of Bergen Tourist Board, Ole Warberg. Also director of the Norwegian Seafood Centre, Odd Jordheim, is pleased to be a part of the new concept. - At the Fish Market, we will share our expertise and provide the best seafood experiences, both to the public and to the tourists, said Jordheim.
