For generations, fishing vessels from all over the world were free to exploit the rich waters around Iceland.
In Hull, fortunes were made and a distinct way of life was created by the city’s fishing community, building a thriving community around Hessle Road.
But the freedom to make a living came at a cost for all relying on the resources of the North Atlantic Ocean.
As the decline of fish stocks led to conflict between friends and former allies, the challenges of the sea remained.
Seafaring communities on both sides of the Cod Wars reflect on confrontation, cooperation and loss, in this film and photography exhibition by Simon Sharp.
