Two things struck me: how could THAT many fish be offloaded every single day and not empty the ocean, and the crazy amount of hard work that is part of the whole operation. Over a six week time at sea, the big fish are caught on single lines by men in tiny wooden dinghies that are launched off the "mother ship". If it was me, those fish would be towing me for miles across the sea! How does that not happen?
After donning our white rubber boots and walking through a "cide" of some description to take care of any nasty things wanting to enter, my friends Anita, Ellen and I had a little tour.
