Abstract: "The very first ships from the Faroe Islands sailed to fish in East Iceland Din 1872. That was when the Faroese marine fishery began. By the 1930s, the fishery had evolved to such an extent that most of the males in the Faroe Islands were aboard ships in the waters surrounding Iceland from spring to fall, the season for marine fishing. The ships were very primitive, for a very long time not better equipped than Noah's Arc."
