In pursuit of the king crabNorway

In the depths of the Barents Sea in northern Norway, fishers search for a prized jewel: the king crab. This gigantic crustacean weighs up to 15 kilos and has a leg span that can stretch two metres wide. Sold for up to 1,000 euros a piece, it’s a treasured commodity in Norwegian fish markets.
