            Not picture of a single fishing boats, but a video from the traditional Portuguese dorry fishery on the Grand Banks, off Newfoundland, which was done in much the same way for hundreds of years.
            This video from 1966 must be close to the end of this traditional fishing method and way of life: http://www.youtube.com/watch?vZOdwbqgycU#t=436

            The Portuguese was among the first to develop modern Factory Trawlers. In fact the first Norwegian Factory Trawler, Longva, had a Portuguese "Traalbas" (Trawl Bosun) He is credited with developing the type of trawl nets used by Norwegian trawlers, even today.

                I'm no fishing boat expert but the vessel in 786 is a shrimp trawler, right?

                  It is a boom trawler, pulling heavy nets along the bottom to catch bottom dwelling fish of all kind, especially flounders etc.

                "Svanaug Elise" heading south Tromsø strait.

                      Came across this old Storvik Trawler on Shipspotting.com. Originally built at Storvik in 1970 as Oksfjord:

                      Now owned and operated from Montevideo, Uraguay under the name Chapoma. Apparently several more of the Storvik Trawlers are operating in the same area.
