Old Photographs Fishwives Gutting Herring Lerwick Shetland Scotland

Old photograph of fishwives gutting herring in Lerwick, Shetland Islands, Scotland. Herring are forage fish which often move in large schools around fishing banks and near the coast. Herring has been a staple food source since at least 3000 B.C. There are numerous ways the fish is served and many regional recipes: eaten raw, fermented, pickled, or cured by other techniques, such as being smoked as kippers.
