Where does our fish come from? Day and night!



Life aboard a French stern trawler working in the Western Approaches - a boat typical of the fleet that fishes all around the coast of Cornwall. Trawlers fish 24/7, many of the French boats only tow for 2.5 hours, hauling and shooting the trawl up to nine times a day.
