    Nostalgia. Factory Trawler John Longva in drydock at Singmarine in Singapore 1991.
    She was on her way from a couple of years of fishing for Orange Roughy off New Zealand and later off Australia. Heading to Myanmar for research fishing for FAO:


    She is no more: http://www.smp.no/nyheter/article117832.ece

    As pointed out in #886, this is also not a fishing vessel pr. definision..., rather a huge boat carrying live fish for further processing at onshore fish factories.
    M/S NAMSOS were built in 2015, so she's brand new, seen here in Kristiansund yesterday




    Then we have a real fishing boat, the POLAR ATLANTIC


    A strange creature with "cut off nose" to drop length under 15 meters and so escape a different set of rules and regs for boats at- or above 15 meters. This one is 14,98.
    (The socalled "paragraph boats" are something of the most ugly sailing the seas)

    Not a fishing vessel as per definition but still a ship carrying (small) fish, back in December....

    This was taken in the late afternoon of December 24th 2015, and their AIS information listed "heimTmor" (literally "going home to our mother") as their destination.

    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!
