Below are two videos of an interview with Bjørnar Nicolaisen, who is secretary in the Norwegian Fisherman's Union Andoey Fiskarlag, on the effects of Oil and Gas exploration on the fishing industry in Norway. After 'Seismic Shoots', he says, which is a particular method of exploring for oil and gas, the fishing catch reduced by 60%. Also he mentions that, similar to Mayo where the oil companies have made cash donations to local fisherman, the result has been a split within the fishing community between those who take the oil money and those who don't. What the interview demonstrates, yet again, is how the true cost of oil exploration is borne by local communities.
