All countries bordering on the waters have their stories, folklore and music about those who go down to the sea in ships. Israel is included in that group. There are 4 selections about fishermen on this Vistas of Israel program:

1) Sfinat Dayig, The Fisherman's Boat, is sung by Rika Zaray and is about a fisherman and his sons. 1:52-4:06

2) HaDayag, The Fisherman, is sung by an unnamed male trio singer and is a fable put to music where the fisherman catches a fish and throws it back, catches a mermaid and throws that back and finally catches a shark and throws that back. He then wonders who will live longer, they or him.4:43-6:52

3) The Sarid Trio sing an untitled song about fishermen sliding their boats into the water through the dawn mist. 6:57-

4) An untitled song is sung by an unnamed female singer and tells the story of a little girl who sees her father off and waits at the shore for his return so she can see his catch. 10:52-13:49
