The Leroy and Barry II returned to port this morning with a load of herring, and judging by the number of trucks lined up at pier 24, more boats are due.

The chute has positioned over the hatch on the tank truck.

The herring are caught at night and rushed to port where they are pumped ashore for processing in southwest Nova Scotia. To maximize sea time for the boats, the catch is unloaded at the nearest port, and that happens to be Halifax right now. As the herring move farther north that will change.
