THE RICH HERRING FISHERIES

The rich herring-fisheries provided the economic foundation for the town of Skudeneshavn in the 19.th. century. Large quanta’s of herring was exported from here, so the town needed a large fleet. The Baltic towns were the most important trading partners. At the most ( 1870 ), 75 ships belonged to this small town.
