Mevagissey prepares for Feast Week!

Last night Matt Slater from the Cornwall Good Seafood Guide met with Mevagissey fishermen to update them on the new CGSG website and how best they can support the ongoing work of the guide which seeks to promote all those species for which Cornwall fishermen are catching sustainably and ethically. Larry Hartwell, from Through the Gaps was also there to give a presentation on how individual or groups of likeminded fishermen can harness the power of mobile technology and social media to help promote their work in the fishing industry to chefs, hotels, restaurants, markets, scientists, other industry organisations and fish-minded members of the public.


With Mevagissey Feast Week due to start at the weekend...


 local fishermen...


 and their boats...


provide a fantastic celebration of the vibrant fishing community...


that residents...


and visitors alike can come together and enjoy in the port...


there's even a few boats more familiar to older hands from ports like Newlyn, the Galwad Y Mor on her outer harbour mooring...


the resident fishermen had the foresight to get these quayside stores built many years ago.
