Gone fishing pt III

Drying headless Cod

While fishing is over in Nyksund, other places still have a flourishing fishing industry. On our way we found this installation where countless Cod were hung up to dry. The fish were all decapitated, with the heads hanging somewhere else, as a cruel medieval punishment… The main punishment was for the photographer though, taking pictures in this fishy smell that stays with you for hours wasn’t the best experience, especially for a photographer who doesn’t eat fish at all…
