The news and views of the latest events along the Solway Coast
Pictured is the Norwegian live fish carrier "Sørdyrøy" docking at Workington to collect salmon smolt (young fish) from a local hatchery near Ullswater. Although this has happened on an annual basis for a number of years its very rare to see two live fish carrying vessels in at the same time. "Migdale" (see "Latest Movements" picture) another Norwegian vessel is already in port collecting a cargo which is brought to the port in specially designed road tanker wagons. The smolt will be delivered to fish farms in Scottish waters. In "Migdales" case her destination is Unst in Shetland which is the most northerly inhabited island in the UK.
