Offerings to Njord

fisherman2Njord is the fisherman's God, and as such he is very concerned with the health of the oceans. For him, however, while pollution is definitely a problem, his main concern is the overfishing of the seas due to industrial fisheries. The oceans are running out of fish at a fast rate, and this is a terrible thing to him. Njord would like to see industrial fisheries banned and fishing returned to small fishermen, especially small fishing families - much as his son Frey prefers small family farms over huge industrial agribusiness farms and feedlots. The new term on the horizon is "artisanal fishermen", for the smaller fishing boats who do it the old-fashioned way, without dangerous dragnets and enormous waste of fish. These are Njord's people, and to support them is to honor him.
