"Omega" in Loch Broom

A photograph of the purse seiner, "Omega", in Lochbroom.

She was built as a stern trawler in Workington in 1973 as "Collena". She was registered as FD221 at Fleetwood but worked out of Aberdeen. In 1987 she was converted to a purse seiner and renamed Omega. She was scrapped at Frederikshavn, Denmark in 2008.

Purse seiners are large commercial fishing boats. They use either Seine nets, which are large and hang vertically in the water, or surrounding nets which surround fish on the sides and underneath and are pulled along the surface of the water.
