AS THE an­cient mar­itime proverb goes, give a man a fish and he’ll cruise for a day, teach a man to throw some dead fish in the fuel tank and he’ll cruise emis­sion-free for a life­time.

Hur­tigruten is cer­tainly har­ness­ing that wis­dom, re­cently an­nounc­ing it will be pow­er­ing some of its ships us­ing fos­sil-free, re­new­able gas pro­duced from dead fish.

“While com­peti­tors are run­ning on cheap, pol­lut­ing heavy fuel oil, our ships will lit­er­ally be pow­ered by na­ture,” boasted Hur­tigruten Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Daniel Sk­jel­dam.

Now be­fore you ac­cuse the cruise line of killing fish to save fish, they will be sourced from the waste of fish­eries.

So what’s next for Hur­tigruten? More green ini­tia­tives, the cruise line says - talk about hav­ing big­ger fish to fry!
