If you have the time you are invited onboard the combined Seiner/Pelagic trawler M/V Teigenes.

Then for a trip in the North Sea to catch herring by Seine Net::

Modern coastal seiner at work:

Heading home to deliver catch:

Fishing boat no more, but still at work:

A brand new long liner, the Antarctic Aurora has just been delivered from Vard Vung Tau. She spent 5 days in Singapore and is now on her way to her home port of Hobart, Tasmania, before starting her first tip to the Southern Ocean to catch Patagonian Toothfish:

PS> She may not be universally welcomed in her home port:

The 42 year old Seiner/Pelagic Trawler Siglar is in town preparing for her trip to her new home in Angola:

Her new name is Yahweh (GOD??)
