Hjelmeland (help·info) is a municipality in Rogaland county, Norway. Hjelmeland was established as a municipality on 1 January 1838 (see formannskapsdistrikt). Two other municipalities were later separated from it: Årdal (in 1849) and Fister (in 1884), but these were both again merged with Hjelmeland on 1 January 1965.
Hjelmeland is known for their fruit (apples, pears, plums, cherries and strawberries) and fish production. Salmon has been important for the fish industry in Hjelmeland for a couple of decades, but white fish such as cod and halibut has increased its value in the latter years.
