      That seems to be a nice trawler, thanks for posting Joakim!

    A type of large Fishing Vessels not seen much on the Northern Hemisphere, Squid Giggers in Port Stanley, Falkland Islands: http://en.mercopress.com/2015/02/20/...oard-incidents
    These boats are not exactly high standard when it comes to crew facilities and are frequently being described as "slave ships" due to the conditions their mostly Indonesian crews are working under.

    The cruise ship in the background may be of more interest to most here on CVF. But which one??

      Ever wondered what 500 tonnes of Mackerel looks like??
      Here it is, before it gets mixed with tomato sauce:


      No fishing boat to be seen, but this little beauty was caught by one:

      At 52 kg. it should be able to feed a few hungry mouths.
      Only the head would make enough "Fish head Curry" to satisfy the patrons at Banan Leaf Restaurant in Little India for an hour: http://www.yoursingapore.com/content...eaf-apolo.html

      So what is the "little beauty"?

        It is a Monkfish (Breiflabb). Very good to eat and now popular in Norway, although expensive. In the "good old days" (some 30-40 years ago) it was killed and thrown back.

      Thank you. I think that is one that I have tried from our market-day fish stall, and didn't like. I'm reluctant to spend money on another try in case my recollection is correct!

        It tastes a lot like lobster actually. Give it another try, but make sure it is the real thing. A small piece is not going to brake the bank.

      Monkfish is called lamproie or lotte in French.It is considered as a first-class dish and cooked in the best restaurants.Since its head is horrible we find only its tails on the stals.I use to cook it in many ways,its texture being appropriate to all sorts of recipe.
      Here is one possibility.

        OK, gentlemen, you have persuaded me and I'll try it again with that recipe. It certainly sounds great. My schoolgirl French sufficed for translation except for gousse, ail et cuillère. Today was market day but it was pelting down and I didn't think it was worth getting soaked, so it must wait for next week - if my fishman has it with him.
        I had to investigate Nuoc Mam sauce as I don't know it. I see it contains chillies, which I don't like but there seem to be several varieties and if I can't find one minus chillies then I'll have a go at making my own. Stand by for authentic Wherry Fish Sauce. If you're not careful you will turn me into a celebrity chef!
        Will report back in due course.
        Meanwhile, many thanks.

          Sorry, Yves, I forgot to say that I had Googled the three words. But I'm glad you don't use the Nuac Man sauce, as that signifies that you find the recipe delicious without.

        You have seen hundreds of fishing vessels here on CVF, big and small. Many of them Factory Trawlers of the type shown in this video.
        This is explaining the process from the trawl bag gets on board until the finished product is stacked in the hold and the wast is processed into Fish Meal to feed cattle, chickens and fish in the aquaculture industry: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xv9YbO51syk
        It doesn't show the process of finding the fish, shooting and hauling the trawl and pulling it back to surface however. (Maybe I can find a video that show that to)

        Actually most if not all Norwegian Factory Trawlers has cut down on the processing on board. They freeze and deliver the fish as "headed and gutted" only. It is then sent to China, where it is defrosted and filleted by hand, re-frozen and packaged for the world market. It cuts down the crew on the trawlers from abt. 35 for full processing on board, to abt. 15. At two full crews per trawler and Norwegian cost level, that is a lot cheaper then what you saw above.

        For those who like slow TV, you may watch the process of hauling a BIG catch up the slip and getting the catch into the receivers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UlOtjxufybM

          Another kind of fishing boat, a Purse Seiner, has got a bit more herring in his net then he can handle: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wxTg_zpD1hs

            Purse Seiners on the Norwegian coast during the golden year of 1950s was very different from today's highly sophisticated vessels: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x9QUgO_d3do

                After these pictures were posted on CVF I was contacted by a person in Norway who was engaged in the identification and capture of these pouching vessels. (No he did not belong to Sea Shepards) I sent him the high resolution pictures by e-mail.

                I like the statement here:
                On Christmas day last year, Sam Simon commenced retrieval operations to remove the illegal fishing gear abandoned by the Thunder when it first fled from the Bob Barker. More than 72 kilometres of illegal gillnet was recovered over a three week period and over 1,400 fish, weighing a total of 45,000 kilograms, were returned to the ocean.

                Poaching vessels such as the Thunder are a primary target of the SSCS’s 11th Southern Ocean Defence Campaign, Operation Icefish.
                If she was catching Toothfish she would have been using long line, not gillnets and if the fish had been hauled up from the depth these boats usually do their deeds, the fish that they returned to the ocean would have been dead.
                Not exactly a lie; the fish was returned to the ocean, but as food for other fish and bottom dwelling creatures. It just shows that the Sea Shepherd crowd either don't know much about fish, or it is their normal light regard of facts shining through.

              That's a nice RORO in the back, though odd looking ..

              Well, what flag did the Thunder fly, when she docked in Singapore ?
