Norway Cold Snap Freezes Fish in Their Tracks

 |  |  |  |  January 18, 2014


It’s gotten ridiculously frigid here in Chicago, what with the recent Polar Vortex and colder than normal winter. But I’ve never seen anything like this scene, recently captured in Norway:

Apparently, when harsh winds caused temperatures over a Norwegian bay to drop to sub-freezing temperatures, the fish swimming close to the surface were flash frozen. While the air temperature of -7.8°C (~18°F) seems balmy by Chicago standards, it was enough to put the instant deep-freeze on the fish.

According to locals, the water and fish remain frozen, and the birds and whales will have a field day when the thaw eventually comes.
