Wednesday evening: Portuguese Fish and Music in the Arctic Cathedral

The Arctic Cathedral in Tromsø

After one first exciting day on the science part of the conference, where conclusions were drawn about the mystery of the polar cod and the fate of the Arctic spring bloom, we continued the evening at Driv, the local student house. Bacalao, a Portuguese dish made from Norwegian stockfish, was this evening’s conference dinner: Bacalao is the Portuguese word for Cod (or in smart: Gadus morhua), and the dish is normally served with potatoes in tomato sauce.
After finishing the predator – prey interaction at Driv, all Arctic Frontiers participants were invited to listen to some beautiful music at the Arctic Cathedral – one of the most famous landmark´s in Tromsø – the Arctic Cathedral. We had the pleasure to listen to some amazing musicians and singers of the now-upcoming Northern lights festival.
