Catching Cornish hake

One hundred and nine miles as the sea bird flies from home, the Newlyn netters Govenek of Ladram and the Ajax work side-by-side to bring home the catch. The boats try to stagger their landings of fish at Newlyn and Brixham so as to avoid flooding the market on any one day. This week, the Karen of Ladram landed on Monday, the Ajax is due for Thursday's market and the Govenek aims to land for Friday, if all goes to plan.
