    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:

    Deutsche Fischfang Union GmbH is the oldest fishing company in Germany and is in 100% ownership of Samherji.
    DFFU operates two trawlers "Baldvin" NC 100 and "Kiel" NC 105

      Interesting news. I have seen a TV report some months ago, where there were named as the last German fishing boats on the high seas. No word about Islandic ownership though. Thank you for mentioning that!

    A brand new trawler "Mark" from Germany visited Tromsø last week
    Built this year
    Freeze trawler "Mark" of 86.2 meters is the new flagship in the fleet of the company Warnemünde Hochseefisherei GmbH.
    The ship's godmother is Angela Merkel.

      Interesting, it was the first new built trawler in Germany since 19 years. The company is owned by Parlevliet & Van der Plas and they are Dutch.

    "Timmiarmiut" (GL) outbound ftom Tromsø this afternoon.

      Awesome shot of this vessel.... actually makes me miss Tromsø too!

    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.
    The small Trawler "Roaldnes" heading to sea:

    (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:

            What is the unusual "blistered texture" just behind the word "HAVFISK"?

            Presumably it's a lighting effect but it's very odd.

            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!
