Samenvatting The story of herring is entwined in the history of commercial fishing. For over two millennia, herring have been commercially caught and its importance to the coastal peoples of Britain cannot be measured. At one point tens of thousands were involved in the catching, processing and sale of herring. They followed the shoals around the coast from Stornoway to Penzance and many towns on Britain's East Coast grew rich on the backs of the silver darlings'. The book looks at the effects of the herring on the people who caught them, the unique ways of life, the superstitions of the fisher folk, their boats and the communities who lived for the silver darlings. With a wealth of illustrations, this fascinating book reveals the little-known history of the herring. And for those who've neglected the silver darlings for lesser fish such as cod and haddock, there are a number of mouth-watering recipes to try.
