27 June 2023

The Museums of the Norwegian Coastal Administration has collaborated on the publication of the book “Molo – the mighty protectors of the Norwegian coast”.

The magnificent book “Molo” takes readers on an adventurous journey along the entire Norwegian coast, from port to port. all the way from East Finnmark to the Swedish border. In text and pictures, author and photographer Trond J. Hansen tells the story of how the breakwaters were built and how it affected the communities along the coast. It is also the story of great engineering, of toil and an eternal struggle against the elements.

The book “Molo” is a magnificent book with magnificent pictures from all seasons and taken under different lighting conditions. Many ports from Lofoten and Vesterålen are presented. This isn’t just the story of breakwaters, it’s the story of our entire coastline.

The publication of the book is part of The Museums of the Norwegian Coastal Administration’s initiative and dissemination project on the importance of fishing ports along the coast.
