Starting out under damp, dark skies or the crisp morning sun, Cornish fishermen go out to sea year-round on everything from cove boats to trawlers to bring us back the freshest and most seasonal catch.
Fishing is entwined in Cornwall’s roots; our culture, history, and traditions have been shaped by life at sea. Generations of families can be found on our boats, with young sons and daughters going out with their parents and grandfathers learning the ropes and getting ready to take on the business in the future.
As primary food producers, fishermen have a huge responsibility both in supplying seafood across the nation and as stewards of the ocean. Cornish fishermen work with scientists to ensure sustainability is at the heart of their methods, ultimately helping to secure stocks as well as securing a future for young people in the industry.
