Harjan

Troms,Norway

Harjan ran aground at Skjervøy 12.March 1984 during work with capelin. She was built in Glasgow in 1948 under the name Setter I as a whaler, and was sold to Norway in 1960. She was under Norwegian flag rebuilt for the northern fishing industry in 1967, and she had an uneventful career. The remains of Harjan rest today on a depth of approx 20 meter on the east side of Skjervøyskjæret, north of Egnesodden.
