Sea hunter of the month May 2023 - Jennifer Leknes

Summer is here and Jennifer runs away with a great summer catch in great summer weather! Congratulations Jennifer, the Havjegerkoppen is on its way 🔥

Sea hunter of the month April 2023 - Anders Dannesboe Larsen
Lovely fish, lovely food, a lovely day! The sea hunter of the month is Anders, congratulations!

Sea hunter of the month March 2023 - Pål Bierman Jørgensen
The jury's reasoning:
March may be the last month of winter weather in the sea before it explodes with life in shallow waters along our coast. In March, it is therefore this catch that really stands out and thus becomes the winner of the sea hunter of the month. Such efforts save many lives from a slow and agonizing death. Good job and congratulations Pål! The Havjegerkoppen is on its way in the mail ☕️

Sea hunter of the month February 2023 - Kajsa Helen Sundelin
The jury's reasoning:
Many great catches were reported in the sea hunter in February, although it must be said to be a challenging season to get food from the sea. This month the cup goes to Kajsa Helen Sundelin with an inspiring and appetizing king crab - The first king crab in Havjegeren 2023! Congratulations Kajsa!

Sea hunter of the month January 2023 - Thomas Erik Sande

The jury's reasoning:
In the very first month of the Havjegeren concept, the havjeger cup is sent to Thomas Erik Sande. In the month of January, he has succeeded in finding lyre, plaice, sand flounder, scrub, scallops and pocket crab! With that, Thomas has nine sea hunter points in the bank after a month with a lot of healthy and good seafood on the menu.

Congratulations Thomas!
