Gijsha. I think the Dutch were among the first to recognize the potential of Shetland herring fishery.

I am always surprised to see in these old photographs the large quantity of fish lying open to the elements and never a seagull in sight. What has changed?

Faster shutter speeds. In photographs taken before 1900 one can occasionally see a finely outlined one completely at rest, and when flying and coming towards the photographer sometimes as a white blur, however retouching came earlier than fast emulsions, and blurs was even more unwanted then than it is today.
