    Now WHY HASN'T the Admiral/Captain installed that "smells" module yet? It's been on his "to-do" list for AGES, hasn't it??????

    This 'Skolæst' explanation is absolutely fascinating as my father had a shoe repair shop and as a child I loved to watch the men in the workshop. The word used for these things on which the shoe was mounted for working on, was actually last ! And the adjustable lasts in the workshop, being of shiny metal, looked more like that fish head!

    Now if we had a smells feature I would be getting the, for me, childhood-nostalgia smell of leather, as well as the the aroma of Martin’s delicious looking meal!

    I belive the english 'Rattail' is the most suitable name for this creature.

    Now, a little language education, if you don't mind:

    The norwegian name 'Skolæst' comes from a very important tool of a shoemaker.
    Sko = shoe
    Læst = shoe template
    And my belife is that the name of the fish comes from its head/front section looks very much like a toe section of a shoe template.
    A random picture of a template used to form the toe section of a handmade shoe:


    A more common 'skolæst' from a shoemaker shop:
    (Don't look much like a fish, I know, but it's the head of the fish and toe section of a shoe template that is similar)


    Shoe template used for high heeled womens shoes:


    Well, now that I've turned this fishfood thread into a shoe tamplate one..., I just as quick will give the thread back to you again

    EDIT: Isn't it great, this CV forum? A member eats fish in a restaurant at Bud, and suddenly you know all there is to know about shoe templates.... (hahaha)

    Like the one eating octopus or calamaris, I'm not quite sure if you want to know what it looks like, but anyway....., since you asked:



    And Skolæst is not only a local name on the creature, it's the name itself on this fish
