Fishing 1973 – 1990

I am a trained chef and while I was a cook, I started fishing. In 1975, I stopped as a cook to be professional professional fisherman. In 1976, I bought my first vessel a fiberglass vessel 9 meters with a 110 hp Volvo Penta. In 1978, together with a colleague, we took over a 16 ton vessel (wood) with a 90 hp Callesen, and later we bought a larger vessel 210 hp wood. In 1981, I bought a vessel (wood) 20 tons with 230 hp Detroit and in 1984 a smaller fiberglass vessel 10.50 meters with a 130 hp Detroit. In 1990 I stopped my private professional fishing activities and joined the “Fiskerikollektivet af 1978”.
