    Selling

    by solopes Updated Dec 14, 2012
    Bornholm - Denmark

    One thing fascinated me in Bornholm:

    The producers put a small table by their houses, displaying what they have to sell. Passing people who decide to buy, pick the things and leave the money. So simple! So serious! So nice!

    Who could imagine such a solution in many other countries?

    Agriculture

    by solopes Updated Dec 14, 2012
    Bornholm - Denmark

    Denmark is a rich and happy country, with a frizzing climate.

    In my country agriculture has been abandoned in the last years, because... "it doesn't compensate". If so, why is it possible in the rich Denmark? Why don't we learn from them?

    Fishing

    by Sjalen Updated Jul 21, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fishing is the livelihood for many people on Bornholm and a sure topic for conversation everywhere. Just make sure both you and the person you talk to have enough time and energy if you want to discuss it. The entire coast is dotted with fishing villages, all with their own smokeries, and most towns have started their lives as fishing hamlets. You often see fishing boats with stickers showing the finger to EU's fishing quotas but something of course has to be done as the Bornholmers themselves have seen fish stocks dwindle and today, there are only around twelve commercial smokeries on the entire island whilst Gudjem alone had 50 not long ago! At the same time the fishermen also have to deal with fishing stops as dioxin levels are high in herring and salmon in some parts of the Baltic Sea from time to time and the authorities monitor the situation. As a tourist, I still hope you enjoy the local fish as it is gorgeous and you will never eat huge amounts - just watch it if you are pregnant. If you want to fish yourself, try the link below or search for other.
