It is told that the people of Qeqertarsuatsiaat in the old days wondered each year as a strange glittering appeared in the fjord in the late summer. It was later discovered that this glittering in fact was thousands of salmon making their way to the spawning-grounds. In the years following this discovery the salmon contributed substantially to local economy. Today however salmon are mostly caught for private consumption or for sale atthe local markets - smoked or fresh.
