The harbor in Newport, Oregon is one of my favorite destinations for reference photographs and for talking with captains and deckhands of small commercial fishing boats. Here, workers are unloading a shipload of hagfish, also known as slime eels. They will be shipped to Korea where they have been overfished and are prized as a food delicacy. Their skins are also used for wallets and leather accessories.
