Description

For thousands of years, men have been fishing off Cornwall and the Scillies, providing both a livelihood and food. Over the past thirty years, there has been as sharp a decline in the fishing fleet as their has been in the fish stocks around the coast and Cornish fisherman have been in the decline. Today, about 1,000 fishing boats, both inshore and deep sea, still ply their trade from harbours such as Mousehole, Penzance, St Mary's Newquay and St Ives. Stuart Lenton shows us the boats that remain as well as the harbours they operate from.show more
