July 1300

Herring are to be sold only in the quantity of 11,000 per last; ling and "Iceland fish" at the quantity of 164 per hundredweight if in a dogger, or 144 per hundredweight if in a "trohwer".

[A "last" was a term for a load applied to certain types of goods (not exclusively fish); the Statute of Herring (1357) seems to define a last as 10,000. "Iceland fish" likely means cod. A dogger was a broad two-masted fishing-boat used in the North Sea. A "trohwer" was presumably a trawler.]
