The Tweed to the Northern Isles

Regular price £14.99

Since Britain joined the European Economic Community in the mid 1970’s, the fishing industry along our coasts has been under pressure from over fishing. In this book, Mike Smylie takes us on a tour from the Tweed to the Northern Isles, taking us to harbours that you could once walk over on the hundreds of fishing boats to coastal inlets where the herring once shoaled. We also see fishermen and women on shore and at sea, their boats, the harbours and the methods used to catch fish. This fascinating selection of photographs traces some of the many ways in which the fishing industry from the Tweed to the Northern Isles has changed and developed over the last century.
