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!

This weekend, Queen Sonja visited Faroe Islands for the first time. The Queen arrived via the royal yacht. Part of her program included visiting
the historic site Kirkjubøur and the Faroe Islands National Art Museum in Torshavn.

In a study conducted by Dagbladet and Swedish media company, Expressen, they found that King Harald V is the most popular member of the Norwegian Royal Family.

The survey asked Norwegians, “Who in the royal family does the best job?" The results as indicated:

While some royal analysis say this is a negative thing, some do say that is pretty normal!

The Norwegian Royal Family host a dinner for the visiting German President.

Queen Sonja is wearing a recycled dress and the large version of Queen Maud’s Diamond and Pearl Tiara. Astrid is wearing a recycled dress and her Gold Bandeau. And Mette-Marit is wearing a new dress with her Diamond Daisy Bandeau.

Mette-Marit’s style remains the most disappointing, imo.

Since the Danish Royal Family are not gifting us with a gala dinner for Henrik’s 80th birthday, let’s look back at his 70th (2004) and 75th (2009) gala dinners where we got tiaras.

And now, 2009. Notable guests include Crown Prince Haakon, Queen Sonja, Countess Pernille and Count Bendt Wedell, Caroline and Peter Heering, Baron Otto and Baroness Helle Reedtz-Thott and the rest of the Danish royal family.
