This photo series was shot in Norway around December when I was doing some research in the maritime sector.
A Fishing Vessel in Norway
Two young workers are monitoring the situation. They are observing a crane that heaves one tone after anther of frozen fish onto the pier.
A man handling the crane. The temperature is about minus 5 centigrades. To get all 60 tonnes of fish out on the waiting trucks it takes 5 hours.
The second lower deck is filled with a machine that processes the caught fish. It is about 25 meters long and 15 meters wide.
The fully automatic machine in the belly of the ship. It cuts off the fishes' heads, cleans their innards, and packages them in handy 15-kilogram boxes.
This is the cold-storage-room. It is located and the third lower deck. The temperature is -40 centigrade. This storage room holds up to 50 tonnes of fish.
A man working in the engine room of the ship. His comment:' Don't get too close or fingers are gone.'
