Fishermen Couldn't Believe What Was on an Iceberg

Published on August 25, 2020

Fishing is not the easiest career in the world. In fact, it can be downright grueling. Fishermen wake up extremely early and prepare everything for the long day on the sea. Then they spend as much time as possible on the water to maximize their catch. For those who do this daily, it’s a way of life. In this story, three friends proved just how compassionate a group of fishermen can be - when they made a surprising discovery at sea.

What started as a typical fishing trip quickly became a shocking rescue mission. When these hard workers saw something alive atop a tippy iceberg, they knew they had to help. Despite not knowing what the creature was at first, they automatically reacted in the kindest way possible. These brave fishermen risked their own lives and their careers for an unknown animal in need of help and proved once and for all that they have some of the biggest hearts out there. They took action when many would have ignored the issue. Their story is one that will make you believe in humanity once again and make you feel better about the world.

The Perfect Trio

Mallory Harrigan, Allan Russel, and Cliff Russel were best friends and loved to fish together. It just made sense to turn it into a business after a while. The trio bought a fishing boat and set up their own commercial fishing company. It was small, with just one boat and a crew of three, but it was something they all enjoyed. Fishing can be challenging, but they were happy to be out on the water every day together.

Since the three friends lived in Canada, they were already in a prime fishing area. The trio was already familiar with the types of fish available nearby and what local consumers would purchase. They didn’t realize, though, just what to expect when they headed out on the sea every day. It wasn’t going to be easy, but it was something far beyond what they’d imagined for themselves.
