OOSTDUINKERKE, Belgium (NBC/EBU) - It's a unique method of catching shrimp, one Belgian fishermen have been using for hundreds of years.
It involves a net, two baskets and a horse.
Fishermen ride horses into the North Sea during low tide and leave nets.
At the end of the day, the contents of the nets of are put in baskets carried by the horses, brought to shore and boiled.
The method of catching shrimp along the North Sea coast is reportedly 500 years old.
Tourists are often drawn to watch the horses and fishermen wade into the sea for the day's catch.
Thursday Belgium's King Albert II and Queen Paola watched the fishermen at work and ate boiled shrimp.
A company has been hired to complete the repairs to the Herbert C. Bonner Bridge on the Outer Banks, but how long those repairs will take remains unknown.
Drivers traveling between Hatteras Island and the mainland were forced to use an emergency ferry Wednesday, following the sudden closure of the Bonner Bridge Tuesday.
State officials say construction on a new Bonner Bridge has been delayed for years because of a legal battle with an environmental group.
