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 Breidafjord 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.
