Miniature Sheet: Life on the sea (Nordic issue)
The coastline of Norway – not counting the fjords and bays – is 2,650 km long. With them, it is approximately 21,000 km long, about half the length of the equator. Off this coast, we have some of the most inhospitable sea areas in the world, often stormy and freezing cold, with fog and rain or snow. These challenging waters are the home of extensive maritime activities, fisheries and oil and gas installations. Accidents cannot always be avoided and people can find themselves in distress. This calls for an efficient sea rescue service.
