Stockfish (15)

This is stockfish drying on wooden racks in Honnigsvåg. It is usually cod and it takes 2-3 months to dry it. It is possible to buy it in supermarkets in small plastic bags. The taste and the smell is pretty intense.

When I was living in Japan, the Japanese dried squid like this and they ended up looking like an old piece of leather with fingers.

This is a pretty intense photo too.

I now have 7 blogs. Each one is different. The newest ones are Sendai, Japan, Dances on Sunshine and Thunder Maker.

I read about the ancient importance of dried fish in northern Europe. I didn't know people ate it so much these days.
