Newlyn Fishing

25 Nov 2015

As well as working with Cornwall Food & Drink on their latest book, The Great Cornish Fish Book, we also supplied photography for their wider promotion of the Cornish seafood and fishing industry. Along with CF&D we met up with the crew of the gill-netter, 'Karen of Ladram' just as she returned from several days away at sea. The crew got to work unloading the catch, with skipper Simon Porter overseeing proceedings. Whilst this was going on, inbetween photos, it was great to chat to Lawrence Hartwell of the legendary Newlyn blog 'Through the Gaps' who was also on board to photograph the goings on. With the catch safely landed, we left Newlyn for a trip around Mounts Bay. Even if only for a short time, dipping into the fishing industry right at its heart in Newlyn was a fascinating insight.
