Live off and for fish
Facts & figures
The mackerel fishermen work with cone-shaped nets which they tie to the back of their boats and pull through the water. Because mackerels swim in compact schools, this method is very selective.
Sheep and fish
The Faroe Island are situated in the northern Atlantic Ocean, in the triangle between Scotland, Norway and Iceland. The name means something like ‘sheep islands’, but we are here for the fish, of course! About 50,000 people live on this island group, and the small harbour of Klaksvík, on the island of Borðoy, is home port to our fishermen.
