    I found this article re; a trawler built at Hatloy back in 1969 on smp.no today: http://www.smp.no/pluss/2017/03/01/%...ick_articles=2
    Apparently there have been a program on NRK about this vessel a few days ago.

    Here is the story of the F/V"Thunder" in The Guardian from 2015: https://www.theguardian.com/environm...pherd-rescuers

    Those with long memories may remember that I posted pictures of this vessel in this thread at the time (Post #836) If not, here is the pictures:

    I have seen reports about night fishing, where they are using big lights to attract the fishes. Could it be such an installation?

    I saw several of these boats in the Gulf of Thailand in the mouth of the Chao Phraya River. I assume they are fishing boats. Does anyone know how they use those long poles?

    Aalesund is the busiest fishing port in Norway. When the cruise season is over the Fishing boat gets to use their Fisheries Pier:


    Some small and some large boat alongside, some loaded and some just waiting for the next opportuinity:


    Some arriving:






    Some leaving to get their next catch:




    And some heading to Vedde to deliver their catch:


    It is good business in fisheries these days: http://sysla.no/2016/10/15/havbruk/f...i-veke_166834/

    More fishing boats seen in Aalesund lately.
    Longliner Geir II heading to Fiskerstrand:




    Gunnar Langva is one of the old traditional names in the Aalesund fishing fleet. Here heading out from Fiskerstrand:


    In the great herring years in the 1950s the earlier Gunnar Langva was usually the top performer.
    Even more famous was Harald Bas, an expert in finding the schools of herring with the traditional "hand line". He was said to be able to estimate the amount of fish in the net using this basic tool to within a couple of hundred Hektoliters.
    An article on smp.no about the time: http://www.smp.no/nyheter/article11324871.ece
    And about Harald Bas:https://nbl.snl.no/Harald_Johansen

    Not a fishing boat but a fish farm service barge seen off Vartdal:






    Not a professional fishing boat, but a very typical Norwegian pleasure boat, called "Snekke", used for hobby fishing:

    In this case out trolling for salmon near Festoy.
