    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:

    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

    Thank you, pakarang. Quite a remarkable invention, smoothly sucking up the net -and the fish inside the net...?

    I'm no professional fisherman, but did you mean this "tube"?

    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.

    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:

    This thread is interesting in its pure simpliness.

    Imagine our surprise when we recognised this Norwegian fishing boat in St John's, Newfoundland. Talking to the crew, they told us they'd just bought the boat, were refitting it and planned to fish around Iceland.

    I have to admit that I'm in awe of your panning shots... you are a master at this technique!

    It takes a Tromsø-based master to make increadible images of something so ordinary as a fishing boat!

    Your images is such a thrill to see, study, and to watch.... thank you a million times for these inspiring shots!
