Emelie

Location: Norway (Lofoten Islands)

Emelie was born on the Lofoten archipelago in the arctic north of Norway, in a small fishing town. The fear of shrinking fish stocks leads Norway to put in place strict quotas, and Emelie’s dad is left without work for several years. By 2012, the quotas have helped and fish stocks are healthy again – and Emelie’s dad can fish once again.

Emelie works in a restaurant and wants to move to the city to study catering.
