Fishing from Brixham in 1967


Great video of Brixham trawlermen shot in 1967 when the fishermen formed a cooperative to handle their catch and the fish market auction - it's successor BTA is till running successfully today

A few points to spot are, the lack of gloves worn by the guys handling the fish - whether they are at sea, landing or sorting the fish on the market - and the lack of ice on the fish at any stage!  Near the end is a shot of a chap from the White Fish Authority (WFA and predecessor to Seafish) using a measuring board to collect the length of fish data from the landings - probably the same board is still in use on the market today!
