Animal encounters - fur seal

1/ Preparing the fishing hole in sea-ice

2/ Send a diver, or two, down the hole with a handy rope

3/ Go on, stop stalling, get down the hole!

4/ Great relief! the divers surface at the other hole

5/ The view from one fishing hole to the next

6/ When it is very cold, the fish freeze pretty much straight away on contact with the air

7/ Feeding the net into a bucket to take back to base and get the fish out

8/ Juvenile Notothenia neglecta

9/ Getting a fish out of the net

10/ Summer fishing isn't as cold, but can still be very uncomfortable

11/ Small boat fishing means pulling the net up manually

12/ The net is then brought back to base where it can be laid out

13/ Releasing fish from the net can be fiddly and uncomfortable!

14/ It can take a long time to go through a 30m net

15/ The net then needs to be straightened and stored neatly so it can be easily deployed again
