Fishermen launching their boat in Sheringham, North Norfolk, U.K. March 2013.

Due to the unusual cold weather in the spring of 2013, the start of the crab fishing season was the latest in living memory.

As the crabs were still lying dormant in the cold water, and in an attempt to catch at least something, the fishermen headed out to sea with the intention of fishing for cod, despite the heavy swell.

"It might sound romantic, but we really are the last hunters."
