            • Something particularly pleasing about that photo, Bengt. Maybe it is that the colours of the boat, yellowy brown, red, white, feature also on the background buildings, as do similarities of shapes (boat railings, building windows) - and even the red bands of the boat echoed in the yellow bands at the top of the Posten trucks (or containers, I can't quite tell). A lovely bright fresh scene to look at on a wet dark day in Edinburgh!

              • 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

                      The Russians has bought a number of Norwegian Factory Trawlers lately.
                      What is the former name of these two?

                      Ombugge, Vitus Bering was build as #121 and has got that name from christening. There was no former name for this vessel. These Series of Trawler was build for Russia. All got russian Names. Some were sold to New Zealand and two remains in Europe. But only icelandic Terney Re is left now. The Norwegian Havbris was sold last year to Russia.

                  • 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.
