I have bee a fisherman, all my working days ... and never saw one ... though Fishermen, who usually have good health and diet ... start seeing the mermaids, when they've been out at sea for too long ...
The too long ... can vary from a week out there, to a few months out there ... but it depends on the health of the individual fisherman, his appetite, and the ship's fish-hold capacity ... what makes the Mermaid ... a Political question.
A good Captain, therefore, knows when its time to head back home.
Hi melglyn. It's not a mermaid of the sea, and call me crazy; but I have a picture I took of a deep brook in Ireland, and when it was developed there was something in the grass under the water that looks exactly like a little water nymph. I know it isn't, but it's fun to think it might be.
well thats good to know as i have only seen them in the movies, and have heard mysterious things about them belonging to the water spirits and would occasionaly seduce and drown sailors on the sea. I am curious as to what they really look like, excluding the beautiful faces, long hair, perfect figure, and colourful fish tail as i see on tv, and then throwing in a bald head, fish eye and shark teeth, scally gray skin, fins and gills everywhere and a giant fish tail.
