Synopsis

This text is a full-scale survey of Welsh coastal fishermen, past and present. It looks at traditional Welsh fishing methods, some fast disappearing, others still in use today. The wealth of fish found around Welsh coasts is described and listed; equipment and techniques, including the varied netting practices, trapping, long lining and shellfish gathering, are explained in detail. Archive photographs and other material reveal the men and women whose livlihood depended on the catch. In contrast, the book also traces the development of the fishing industry in the larger ports of Milford Haven, Cardiff and Swansea, particularly in the boom years of the 19th-century.
