Fishing Nets
Netherlands, Urk, May 2011

Urk used to be an island in the IJsselmeer, the former Zuiderzee. In 1939 a dike from the mainland to Urk ended its island status. It is one of the most conservative areas in the Netherlands. Its documented history dates back to 966. The important economic pillar of the village is, and has always been, the fishery. After the IJsselmeer was formed, the Urkers fished on the North Sea. Due to rising prices of fish, at present Urk is a very prosperous village en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urk
