During the winters from 1984 up to 1987 the Baltic Sea has been frozen in it's western part too. This happened for the last time yet in 1996. The change of climate can be seen here too... "Neu 22" is not in danger of ice any more...

These Danish style Seine netter's are very sturdy craft. Built traditionally of oak on oak, they out-live the steel boats by many years. There are quite a few of these fishing boats still fishing from UK ports!!

Interesting photo Mathias. Do you mean that the boat was saved?

Hallo Jim!

To be honest, i don't know much about these little boats, but they still exist in the little fishing harbours at the Baltic Sea. There you can get the best fish! And these fishermen do not destroy nature under water like the big industry-boats do...

I don't know what happened then, but people in my area are said to be very stubborn. So i'm sure they saved it. ;-)

Best wishes from Munich, Mathias

Greetings Mathias

I totally agree with your sentiments regarding large scale industrial fishing techniques. The trawlers have devastated all the fish stocks and flattened the sea-bed with their heavy rock-hopping trawl gear.

Nothing they catch lives, and much of the immature catch is discarded, dead, into the ocean!!

The EU fishing policies and poor policing of the fleets, and the greedy trawler men are entirely to blame!!

These methods are completely unsustainable and yet they do not learn the lessons.

Only when they have plundered the oceans beyond redemption will they ever stop!!

OK Mathias, that's my political speech over ;>)))

Greetings Jim,

your political speech is absolutely correct. I totally agree. In the 70ties and 80ties it was never difficult to catch some good flatfish or codfish in the North Sea or Baltic Sea where i'm from. But nowadays it's getting less and less and the flatfish has the size of a stamp... Especially in Denmark the industry fishes away all the little fish (especially sand eel, but small cods a.s.o. as well) so there is no chance for the bigger ones to find something to eat or for the smaller ones to grow up... And where does the sand-eel go? To cow- or chickensheds... Perverted world... Did you ever see a cow catching fish???

Best regards, Mats :-)

Ja da bist Du ja nicht weit von meiner Heimat-Eishöhle entfernt. Auch die Zeit paßt ;-)

Moin Roland, Lübeck und Lensahn sind wirklich nicht weit auseinander. :-)Diese Eiswinter früher habe ich eigentlich immer geliebt. Schade, dass es schon 13 Jahre her ist, dass die Ostsee zum letzten Mal in underer Ecke zugefroren ist...

Leckere Bilder sind das übrigens!

Grüße aus dem Münchner Exil, Mathias :-)
