Crayfish – Kräftor

Posted on

Crayfish fishing was banned before August 7 at 5 pm, to allow crayfish time to mature. This is how August 8th came to mark the beginning of crayfish season or the Kräftpremiär (crayfish premier). Although the ban on fishing crayfish was removed in 1994, old traditions remain and most Swedes still wait until after the premier – both to fish and eat crayfish. To fish you must have a license or your own crayfish waters. The Swedish Crayfish party is as loved and celebrated as much as Christmas and midsummer
(Sweden.se).
