As one of the last inhabitants of Flatey showed in his photo album, there were times the local fisherman caught so much herring that their boats hardly were kept afloat. - Flatey is the largest island of the western islands, a cluster of about forty large and small islands and islets located in Breiðafjörður on the northwestern part of Iceland. The island today has a seasonal habitation; most houses there are occupied only during summer. In winter, the island's total population is five people.
