    How many are there of these old GOM boats fishing Snowcrabs in the Barentz Sea? I notice that there are some registered in Lithuania as well. Here one seen in Aalesund:


    The Arctic Wolf is among the oldest of the type, built in Lockport in 1965. Not much of the old vessel appears to be intact.
    Even the superstructure is changed and probably the main engines as well, but the hull shape is easily recognizable.
    Here is a typical GOM boat from the same yard, but build in 1979:

      It is difficult to say how many vessels of this type built in the 1960s as fish snow crab in the Barents Sea right now.

      But I will not be surprised if we see more vessels of this type with the huge amount of snow crab in the Barents Sea ahead.

    Longliner "Geir II" passes in the afternoon darkness.
