Icelandic Weekly Ísafold Reports Strange Events at Sea

Several fishermen from the village of Sveitarfelagio report odd events at sea. The captains of a number of small fishing vessels report odd currents and smells in their usual fishing grounds southeast of the island.  One larger vessel, the trawler Skopti, reports difficulty with both its engines and its compass, but returned safely to port.
