ABSTRACT
The article comments on issues dealing with fishermen and life in the seas. The author shares some superstitions he heard as a child who grew up in the Isle of Man, including about the tarroo ushtey, believed to be a bull-like monster in the sea that sometimes come ashore and eat people. Another superstition is about turning a boat the sun as giving bad luck. He laments the quality of a canned tune he bought in Thailand and points out the need for better labelling of canned products.
