Norway has a very liberal approach to tourist fishers and applies no quotas, taxes or specific regulations on recreational tourist fishers in the sea, except basic rules regarding the tools that they are allowed to use and also regarding selling fish, which is not allowed for tourist fishermen.

Many of those who work in construction confront a dangerous working environment, exploitative work practice and hardship in living conditions.
