    Thank you for your nice comment, Seagull

    The image is lit by the sun and is a reflection of the beautiful weather that we have now in the fall I think
    The fishing vessel is a breath of fresh air with its bright colors as she sails north Tromsø strait

      Here is the Krill Trawler Juvel seen in the Southern Ocean:

      They are eventually starting to make a profit this year. One more Trawler is in the planning for the same Owner.

      I was involved in a project to build and operate a krill trawler back in 1988-89, but we were too early by about 18-20 years.
      I still keep the drawing and project papers though, if anybody is interested.

        Comment actually posted by Ombugge not me!

        I posted the above a few days ago. Today there came a program on the Asia Food Channel about Krill Fisheries in the Southern Ocean and a visit on board a Krill Trawler called Saga Sea, owned and operated by Aker Biomarine, which is again owned by one of the investors we tried to get along back then.

        Here is a link to the part of the 45 min. program that has the visit on board the Saga Sea: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NOC2P...V213-vwGIUN0hs
        The other 3 parts is also obtainable on YouTube for those who are specially interested.

        What struck me is that the projecthas nearly all the technical solutions and the product range that we were looking at then we put together back 25 years ago:
        Krill Meal for Aquaculture feed as the main products, but with Krill Oil for Pharmaceutical industries as a bi-product.
        Frozen Krill for the Processed Food industry and peeled and frozen Krill for human consumption was also in the planning.
        Even the shells left from the peeling would also be processed for use in the Cosmetic industry. Nothing wasted.

        The method of pumping the catch directly from the Cod End of the trawl net to the receiver tanks on board was part of our design and it was not a new idea. Russians already had the idea before us, but I'm not sure if it had actually been done yet then.

        Bring back a lot of memories of an interesting time, with a lot of challenges. Unfortunately we never managed to top finance the project.
        ​We could get 100% finances for building the Trawler, incl. the factory machinery and even the fishing gear, but we could not get anybody to finance the first 6 months of operation, which was what it would take before the first income would be in the bank.

      "Mark Ljubovskii"
      Former name(s):
      - Fengur (Until 2010 Dec)
      - Tenor (Until 2009)
      - Volstad Senior (Until 2005 Feb)
      - Tenor (Until 2004 Dec)
      - Ottar Birting (Until 1993 Dec)

      "Vitus Bering" was built at Sterkoder in Kristiansund in 1990 as "Vitus Bering"
      I can't find another name on her. Maybe Sterkoder can comment this to confirm if this is right or wrong?

        I remember the Ottar Birting very well from the time she was fishing off New Zealand in the early 1990s.
        We supplied Indonesian Factory Workers to several Norwegian and one Fearoy trawlers chasing "Orange Roughies" in the area back then.

      The one in 704 looks like a model boat!
      Cheers,

      Mark.

          I just wanr to share this photo with you of this trasitional fishing boat used for tourist-fishing at the harbour of Andenes. It is not the fishingboat itself who are the main issue here. But I think the mood in this photo is so nice and calm. So I want to share it with you

            Great photo Martin - like you say, it's really peaceful. I've deleted the duplicate post - hope that was right.
            Cheers,

            Mark.

              Despite a bit of a struggle posting stuff tonight I'm feeling really calm after looking at your photo Martin! Attractively framed too.

            For the Fishing Vessel thread:

            Lots of Fishing vessels actually using the "Fishing Pier" in Aalesund, now that the last Cruise ship for the season has left:


            A couple of new and big ones as well:

              I'm wondering if that's a Norhaven yacht in the foreground of post #4. Might make a nice CV yacht. Not enough room for everyone at once but be we could take turns.

              I think it is this one: http://www.skipsrevyen.no/batomtaler...-2006/383.html
              Used as HSC ferry on the route Aalesund - Langevaag in the off season and off peak hours.

              Otherwise making daily trips to Geiranger, Runde and Ona with tourists during the season.

              Available for cruises on the fjords around Aalesund year around: http://www.62.no/no/aktiviteter/batturer

              She has featured in the Aalesund and HSC threads before.

              I love the three little dingies following along in tow.

                Impressive bridge Gardar has and all the other equipment details so well shown in your photo, Bengt, and I must mention the gorgeous autumn colours in the background.

                  Thanks for your comment, Seagull
                  Autumn colors are gorgeous, but when first fall gale comes disappear most of the leaves as usual.
                  Autumn weather has been absolutely beautiful so far.

                  BTW: rumour has it that "Gardar" are sold to Iceland.

                    Bengt, it's very nice to see all these small vessels passing by my computer screen, greatly appreciated!

                      It's been quiet on the Fishing Boat thread for a while, so I'll show a couple of the boats visiting Singapore:




                      Slightly different from what Bengt normally serve up.
