An AP story from Oslo, Norway.
    "A school of herring caught in a trawler's net refused to give up
without a fight  - and sank a 63-foot trawler.
     The trawler Steinholm was fishing off Norway's northern coast when it
made a huge catch of the fish. When the crew tried to haul in the net, the
entire school of herring swam for the bottom and capsized the ship, the Oslo
newspaper Dagbladet reported yesterday.
    "I have been fishing since I was 14 and I have never seen anything like
it," skipper Geir Nikolaisen, 49, was quoted as saying.
    Crew members tried to cut loose the net but were forced to abandon the
capsized ship, which sank in 10 minutes. No one was hurt and the six
fishermen were rescued by another trawler.
