There are about 6-7 big fishing vessels and almost 30 smaller finishing boats registered in Botnhamn. Most of these operate year-round out of Botnhamn, but there are also fishing boats from other villages operating out of Botnhamn. It is fair to say that the main branch of industry in the village is the fisheries. Fishing is no joke during at winter when stormy weather and snow sometimes makes it impossible to leave the harbour. During summer most of the boats rest quietly in the harbour.
