Barrels for the Shetland catch of herring being unloaded at Lerwick, 1949

Barrels for the Shetland catch of herring being unloaded at Lerwick, 1949.
Klondyking for fresh herring has begun in the Shetlands.
For two weeks all Shetland Herring Boats (from Lerwick and Scalioway) can land unlimitedcatches of fish. As against the limited landings of Scottish fishing ports these fishermen get their ?3 per cran. The Scottish ports, however, witht heir limited lands recieve 89/10d per cran - which means that generally the Shetland fisherman gets less for his work unless he lands enormous catches.
A cran is about 1500/1600 fish - the number getting smaller as the season advances Four baskets of boxes make up a cran.
Klondyking is the name given to the Shetlanders who fish unrestricted for the first two weeks. It comes fromt he Gold Rush days when it was every man for himself.
Fish where the fish are!
