The salt fish industry powered the economy of Shetland for more than two hundred years and made herring and cod a staple food throughout Europe. This book follows the historical thread to explore how cultures from Polish shtetls to Greenland fjords and the Faroe Islands to the Basque country were connected and shaped by the salt fish trade. The author also meets those whose lives revolve around the industry in the twenty-first century and addresses today’s pressing themes of sustainability, climate change and food choices.
