  Storing Catch from high sea
by mehulraj

This is where they store their catch and its not real person they have put some statue of life size to show actual situation.All the catch is dropped from top and brought down here in store room and all the fish staked on one each other layering ice throughout to keep them in good condion.

This store room is just next to engine room of vessel apart from rough condition of sea,sailors has to bear the noise coming from engine room.All I can say after working for close to 18 hours in any day at sea makes them physically and mentally tired.

And on this kind of small vessel going to North Sea puts them on mercy of mother nature.Condition of sea during fishing period is as dangerous as walking on live mines.I mean with rough sea there is always possibility of falling,slip or trip and apart from all these working condition onboard,its really necessary to have attentive mind all the time.If you loose concentration for one second and there is possibility of danger infront of you next second.
