Setting off from the aquarium’s own jetty with a cargo of great stories, the good ship Sværd will embark on a two-and-a-half hour sailing trip towards fertile fishing grounds.
The picturesque landscapes of the Øresund and an astounding fishing history form the backdrop for the practical work of bringing aboard and emptying the fishing nets on the ship’s deck. Your informative guide together with the crew of the ship will help with the hard work – not least the cleaning of the catch, which – Poseidon willing – should include cod and garfish.
So whether you’re yearning for authenticity at the supermarket, or if you just want to share an educational experience with your children, our fishing excursion is just the remedy.
