  2. Funny how one's mind works ... I just brought to mind The Dubliners' song " Shoals of Herring" - do you know it? Do you like The Dubliners?

    God bless.

    1. No, I haven't heard that song before. I've heard of the Dubliners but haven't listened to their music. We have the Young Dubliners and they are pretty good. I will have to check out the Dubliners on YT.
      Thanks, Victor.

  5. I have never heard the term pelagic fish. Is it used to denote salt water fish as opposed to fresh water fish?

    1. Pelagic fish live in the pelagic zone of ocean or lake waters – being neither close to the bottom nor near the shore – in contrast with demersal fish, which do live on or near the bottom.

  6. This looks like a huge operation. I assume that strict limits are on the amount of fish that can be taken.
