Phone a fisherman

There are eight or nine fishermen working out of Fishguard Lower Town.

Fishing boats Lower Fishguard

It’s dangerous work. The men usually go out alone and are dependent on the weather, tides and availability of fish – all of which are beyond their control. They divide the area up between them to avoid over fishing and if they don’t process the fish themselves, many sell on to wholesalers. Some of the fishermen would like to sell more locally and their recently acquired ice machine will enable them to keep the fish for longer and sell direct to customers from the quay in Lower Town.

If you fancy really fresh fish, ring a fisherman and find out what’s available.

About bookvolunteer

I'm passionate about books, about Oxfam and about making the world a better place. When I'm not filling the shelves in Oxfam Wilmslow, I might be found reading the books I've bought in the beautiful surroundings of North Pembrokeshire.
