Salted herring and mackerel sit in vats, preserved for use as lobster bait.
Over time the salt draws all the fluid from the fish and they shrivel up a bit. Here, our friend Mr Mackerel could use a drink of water to rehydrate. Not to worry, soon enough he will be stuffed in a bait bag and sent off the back of a lobster boat to lure in some unsuspecting lobster that’s poking around at the bottom of the ocean looking for a meal. Mr Mackerel will sure enough find that water once again…..just before he becomes lunch.
