Documenting Iceland (2017)

On the beach were many farms, which usually were several in rural areas near the best landings. Powerful rowing was from many farms for centuries, as the fishing grounds were closed by. During the winter season, the fhishermans from other settlements were in addition to locals. In addition to the extinction, farmers owned cows and sheep and had their livestock in the summer in the seals at Strandarheiði. In the 19th century, the number of people on the shore increased, but when the catch declined, mainly due to British trawlers, the number of people decreased again. However, it changed again when the Motorboat period began and the fish could be retrieved further out.
