Wednesday, 30 October 2019

Despite the poor fishing weather there are 11 EU and flagged vessels all with 30 miles of Newlyn.


Although the weather has blown all but a handful of local boats back to port there are 11 boats in the waters around Lands End, 2 Newlyn beam trawlers, 6 Breton stern trawlers...


a Belgian beam trawler showing his route over the last few weeks...

and a Dutch freezer trawler which stuck close to the 12 mile limit while assumedly looking for fish marks to shoot her trawl...
