Fishing provides a livelihood for those involved in the industry, but is also important for the contribution it makes to heritage and identity.  The photographs offer a poignant reminder of an industry struggling to survive against a backdrop of strict regulation and quota restrictions.

Regardless of all its current challenges, this historic profession continues to contribute to the character and identity of coastal communities across Europe, for the benefit of residents and tourists alike.

As well as this new exhibition there’s lots more happening this month at the Maritime Museum.
