Clock Back

Turn the clock back some 20 years and there in, or off, Lerwick or Ullapool would have been a fleet of Russian ships, the so-called Klondykers, taking advantage of (or depleting) fishing stocks. With the demise of the Soviet Union they disappeared. Last week one ship sailed in, not for fishing, but to take advantage of storage facilities in Lerwick. Read about it in Shetland News and note where its cargo of blue whiting is heading ... Nigeria.
