Author(s): THór, Jón TH.

Laxárdal Saga and others show intense fishing in 11th Cent. in West Iceland. Stockfish exports began in 1300, continuing until 1800. Three eras of boat sizes can be seen. Three seasons followed shoals around coast, and migrant fishermen moved south in winter. Fully dried stockfish had many characteristics of cereal.
