Fishing festival

Overview

The fishing festival at Sjernarøy has been organised every year since 1968, and is one of the country's oldest fishing festivals. Registration starts at 9:00 am. To compete in the competition, the fish must be weighed before 2:30 pm. Award ceremony starts at 3:00 pm. Fishing for sinny wrasses only takes place at the designated place, and is reserved for children from 0-10 years with life jacket or accompanied by an adult. There will be a prize for the most number of sinny wrasses caught alive. After the award ceremony, the program is over, but you may want to sit down to enjoy cold or hot drinks, or simply enjoy good company.
