      Imagine our surprise when we recognised this Norwegian fishing boat in St John's, Newfoundland. Talking to the crew, they told us they'd just bought the boat, were refitting it and planned to fish around Iceland.

        You certainly make fishing vessels look awesome in your images!

          This thread is interesting in its pure simpliness.

            Remember the vessel I kept on taking pictures of at Batam but couldn't figur out what it was going to become?
            I eventually found out when she was ready for launch:


            What became of her?? Well, here she is in Aalesund today:




            And yesterday:

            A question on fishing boats - what is the open-ended white tube that sits high either amidships or towards the stern of a vessel? Can't find a photo of one but saw many of them in and around Norwegian waters. I presumed these vessels were filleters - but only a guess.

              Thank you, pakarang. Quite a remarkable invention, smoothly sucking up the net -and the fish inside the net...?

              The fish does not go through the "tube" but is pumped on board directly from the seine net using submersible pump lowered into the seine net once it has been pursed together and reduced in volume to concentrate the herring or mackerel: http://www.erviksaevik.no/pumpesystem/

              The net is reduced in size by pulling the net back on board by the power block, guide it to the lay-block through the "tube" and lay it out in the bin, ready for next catch.

              Here is how it works: http://www.fao.org/fishery/geartype/249/en

              Thanks for the further explanation, ombugge. Is there any less wastage of fish - particularly bycatch?

            Some fishing vessel seen in Aalesund the last few days.

            (Or to her "home port" at Vigra for the holiday season maybe?)

            The new Factory Trawler "Havbryn" is home because she has taken her quota for 2015:

            Two other Strand trawlers will be in the Barentz Sea, fishing until the last minute of the year to fill theirs.

            Two Russian Trawlers are awaiting the new year and new quota:

              These shots are superb in every possible way. The fishing vessels you have captured are at first look, like taken out of a sci-fi thriller.

              They build some pretty awesome fishing boats these days!

                        Not a fishing vessel as per definition but still a ship carrying (small) fish, back in December....

                        This was taken in the late afternoon of December 24th 2015, and their AIS information listed "heimTmor" (literally "going home to our mother") as their destination.

                          As pointed out in #886, this is also not a fishing vessel pr. definision..., rather a huge boat carrying live fish for further processing at onshore fish factories.
                          M/S NAMSOS were built in 2015, so she's brand new, seen here in Kristiansund yesterday




                          Then we have a real fishing boat, the POLAR ATLANTIC


                          A strange creature with "cut off nose" to drop length under 15 meters and so escape a different set of rules and regs for boats at- or above 15 meters. This one is 14,98.
                          (The socalled "paragraph boats" are something of the most ugly sailing the seas)
