Legend about king of fish
• There is a legend about a fish
which had a crown on his head
and was called King Sielaw.
When people started fishing,
they wanted to catch it, but he
was very clever. The gods told
the fisherman how to catch the
fish. When they caught it, the
Fish King said: „If you set me
free, I will give you a lot of fish”.
But they didn’t believe him and
tied him to the pier with a strong
chain.
