[PHOTOS] President on All Night Fishing Expedition: ‘I Admire Fishermen’

kgCroatian President Kolinda Grabar Kitarović has spent the night out on a fishing boat – to get a closer look at what the nation’s fishermen experience and the everyday problems they encounter….

“I have to say that I admire these people (fishermen). All night we patiently waited whilst the fish gathered under the lights. I can only imagine how it is for the fishermen when the sea is not calm and it is not this warm to work all night and I really admire them,” said the President after the fishing expedition in near the Kornati islands in the early hours of Tuesday.

The President and the crew reportedly caught over 10 tonnes of fish on their trip.
