Öld öfganna - hugleidhingar um thróun sjávarútvegs á 20.öld / Jón TH. THór.

Title: Öld öfganna - hugleidhingar um thróun sjávarútvegs á 20.öld / Jón TH. THór.
Translated title: Age of extremes - memories of progress in catch at sea in 20th century.
Author(s): THór, Jón TH.
Date: 1999.
Language: Icelandic.
In: Aegir. (1999.), Vol. 92(12) (1999)
Abstract: At times history of Icelandic fishery reminds one of vessel in rough sea. Photographs of vessels in Reykjavík harbour in 1899 and now show clearly change from oars and sails to mechanised, decked ships, trawlers and net catchers. First steam trawler, Coot, came to Iceland in 1905, and fleet mechanised in next 5-10 years, catch increased rapidly, new stocks were raided and new buildings went up. Yet in 1930s island's industry was on brink of bankruptcy. WW2 changed things, so that in 1950 Icelandic fleet was bigger and better than ever. In 1960s herring catch was right down and many fine ships were tied up. Herring in summer and cod in winter kept industry going. Soon was another rising wave. Herring were hunted as far as Svalbard, but only with drift nets. Next trough was deeper and steeper. Herring were finished. In 1970s Iceland waters were extended to 50 and then 200 miles.
