Another garage annex shop is located on Oosterend’s eastern side. Situated in a leafy environment, a rather new cemetery sits to the southeast. In all, the village comprises about 400 houses. Oosterend proper has approximately 1,000 inhabitants. For a community this size, there is a surprising range of local institutions. There is a community centre with a kindergarten. In addition to the ‘old church’, there are several other churches. A beautiful Mennonite (Doopsgezinde) church dates from 1775, but is no longer used for worshipping.

Paintings and pictures of vessels that are – or used to be – family owned and operated are rather common in the homes of (retired) fishermen. More importantly, in the villagers’ self-image, Oosterend is definitely a fishing community. As mentioned above, in matters of creed Oosterend and Oudeschild differ markedly. The image of the former is that of a pious Protestant community, whereas Oudeschild’s is that of a predominantly nonreligious village.

The system restored peace and quiet in the fishing industry. It enhanced stability, mutual trust and compliance with the regulations. Generally, it was applauded as a model of good fisheries governance by the government, observers and fishermen alike. There were, however, various adverse or unforeseen consequences, including rights hoarding, slipper skippering and quota hopping. Moreover, power balances between owneroperators and co-adventuring crewmembers became increasingly skewed. However, the major threat that endangered the rather well-adapted system was the flow of new rules emanating from the European Union.
