Quality control aboard the Dreckly boat Bess


On the deck of the good ship Bess one of the Dreckly fleet, out comes the carapace gauge for lobster - and back over the side she goes!

The lobster fishery is worth over £1.5 million per annum - and for the last 30 years has been tightly run with fishermen at the very heart of the management process in cahoots with IFCA. See Eddie Derriman's excellent presentation slides that accompanied a talk of his at the National Lobster Hatchery conference.
