Prawn: Delicacy from the bottom of the sea. Two stocks.
Edible crab: Our most common crab.
King crab: Newcomer in Norwegian waters. Introduced by Russian scientists.
Snow crab: New species arriving from the north.
Sea urchin: Actually an echinoderm. Pest or resource?

Molluscs live from the high tide mark down to several hundred meters depth.
Mussels: Easily accessible delicacy from south to north.
Large scallop: Hiding on the bottom.
