In the later 19th and early 20th century the Scottish herring fishery expanded and exceeded its European rivals to become the biggest fishery in the world.

    Intensive fisheries for herring occurred near Orkney, Fairhill and Shetland. Coastal and freshwater fisheries provided fresh fish for local as well as export markets, but also provided bait for the massive offshore hook and line fishery for the production of salted cod, which remained largely unnoticed.
