This illustrated volume is a reminder and a record of the disappearing world of the small-scale working fishermen who fish in the cold grey seas of the North Atlantic and the North Sea. These are the days of the factory ship, dwindling fish stocks and frozen slabs of supermarket fish, but there are still fishermen who own their small boats, go out to sea every day and bring back amazing and beautiful sea creatures to sell on the dock. There are still, too, romantic images of their predecessors in the little fishing ports from Maine to Norway, from the Shetlands to Biarritz, from Norfolk to Brittany, and from Dorset or Dieppe.
