King Harald V and Queen Sonja during Easter visited Easter Island. Today marks the 100th year anniversary of Norwegian explorer and scientist Thor Heyerdahl introduced the isolated island known for the rest of the world.

The King described the visit saying, “It was an amazing experience to travel to Easter Island. It was a magnificent island. When Thor Heyerdahl was there, it was brown and there was hardly a green blade of grass or a tree. Now it is a completely different island. It was a green and beautiful place with lots of trees.”

Easter Island is located in the eastern Pacific and is one of the most isolated places. The closest inhabited island is Pitcairn Island, 1,600 km further west. In 2012 the island had about 5,800 inhabitants and is under Chilean rule. From 1995, Easter Island was declared a UNESCO list of World Cultural and Natural Heritage.

Today Queen Sonja of Norway opened the Nor-Fishing 2014. The Queen
toured the exhibition area, where over 500 vendors are represented. The exhibitors represent shipyards, suppliers of fishing gear, engines and deck machinery, marine electronics, fish finding, navigation and communication equipment, machinery and equipment for fish processing, cold storage equipment, packaging and transport, rescue and safety, environmental , fishing ports and services.

The Queen’s speech during the event

Ladies and gentlemen,

I am not a “fisherperson”, but I love sailing along our long Norwegian coastline and experience how people live and survive on the outer islands.

I am really amazed by the energy and courage the people show in these often scarcely populated places. Fisheries are of course most important. I meet people from the far north to the deep south, and I am always proud to see how creative people really are.

Two years ago I was in the Lofoten islands, where I observed and filmed fishermen, fishing mackerel. But the fishing boat was not local; it belonged to an island further south. People in northern Norway are not familiar with fishing mackerel, because the species has NOT been there before. Something is obviously changing! It told me that we must be aware of changes in our environment.

We have challenges – common challenges that must be solved, not only here in Norway, but globally. Nor-Fishing has a leading role – also internationally – and offers a vital venue for addressing these important issues.

We are now 7 billion people on the planet. And the population is growing rapidly. All these people need food. Part of the solution to this challenge lies in the oceans. But in order to protect the resources in the oceans also for future generations, we need sustainable management. Education, knowledge, and good solutions are vital if the world is to succeed in harvesting the resources so important for everyone. We have to act wisely!

In closing, I would like to draw the attention to another fact which also is a sign of a changing world: Women are now increasingly more important actors in the industry. I would like to point out that it is of course purely coincidental, - and certainly not a “feminist coup d’état” - that women dominate today’s official opening. But as it happens, I am accompanied here today by three women in leading positions, – namely:

Minister of Fisheries - Elisabeth Aspaker, Mayor of Trondheim  - Rita Ottervik and Director of Fisheries and Chairman of the Nor-Fishing Foundation -  Liv Holmefjord.

This was probably unthinkable when the first Nor-Fishing exhibition was arranged in 1960!

But – we have not forgotten our men!

For more than 50 years Nor-Fishing has been an important venue for the fisheries industry, for the exchange of news, technology – and not least – for the sector to meet, formand strengthen partnerships.

I wish you all a fruitful, interesting and enjoyable time here in Trondheim.

With these words, it is a great pleasure for me to declare Nor-Fishing 2014 officially open!
