Fishing in 1991

Fishing in 1991

There's a familiar ring to the stories from this TV report on the fishing - even though it is 1991!

1500 fish merchants and 100 trains were operating out of Grimsby in its heyday. Listen to the minister (10:30) talk about technical measures and regional control. Little recognition that the government was just as complicit in building a huge fleet of modern boats as the fishermen with the resultant decline in stocks. Today, Wick, Scrabster, Banff, Buckie, Peterhead, Fraesburgh, Eyemouth, North Shields, Whitby, Scarborough, Grimsby and Lowestoft have but a fraction of the boats there were in 1992.
