Info

The watercraft used by Icelandic cod fisherman Karol Karelsson and his colleagues for cod fishing near the small part of Sandgerdi on the western side of Reykjanes peninsula, Iceland. (Karol Karelsson is featured in the book What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets.) Although their craft is small their large nets are mechanized. They monitor the casting then drink coffee and eat bread and fruit in the boat's galley until it's time to haul in the bounty. They clean the fish in the belly of the ship, toss the guts, and then, after repeating this cycle many times for 8 hours, head for port.
