Beautiful Industry – Herring

The herring have been scarce so the big boats have been going all the way to George’s Bank to try to find them with no luck in the past two weeks.  That means they have been burning a ton of fuel as the herring boats are gigantic vessels.

We’ve been filling in by using pogies for lobster bait which are not nearly as much fun to handle.  They break down much faster and they produce this incredibly slick oil which gets all over the floor and everywhere making it a PITA to use.  Beggars can’t be choosers though so whatever it takes to get our lobstermen out fishing is what we will try to provide.
