THE FISH­ING IN­DUS­TRY

Countryfile Magazine - - Discover -

One of the heart­en­ing as­pects of a trip along the Cor­nish coast is to find that the fish­ing in­dus­try is not dead at all. It is nowhere near the scale of a gen­er­a­tion ago but New­lyn re­mains a big port and there are still boats op­er­at­ing out of Me­vagis­sey and Looe. Boat skip­pers who have man­aged to sur­vive are now get­ting de­cent prices for fish. There are year-round jobs for those able to cope with one of the hard­est work­ing lives there is. An­other div­i­dend is the ready avail­abil­ity of good fresh fish to buy and to con­sume in pubs and restau­rants – a ma­jor ad­vance for Cor­nish cui­sine.
