The latest issue of fishing industry magazine Quay Issues has been published. The free publication, created by government fishing authority Seafish, covers stories from the industry, including spotlights on fishing gear technology, safety at sea and industry recruitment.
Copies will be available from Fisherman's Mission centres around the UK, fishing producers' organisations and by download from the Seafish website, from which hard copies can also be requested.
The magazine is informed by Seafish's annual fleet survey, during which a team of researchers travel to every port in the UK speaking to as many vessel owners as possible. This year, over 600 individual interviews were conducted, gathering data on the costs and earnings of the UK fishing fleet.
During the survey, Seafish researchers receive an update on the challenges and opportunities faced by individual fishermen every day, and Quay Issues shares stories about the creative ways in which fishermen have overcome any challenges.
