Vidar Hansen

Vidar was born and raised in Bugøynes, the capital of Norwegian king crab. He has been fishing all his life and there is almost no tool he has not fished with. Vidar is proud that he was one of the first ones to capture and deliver crabs for research in 1995. In his spare time he hunts bears, wolves and mooses.
