Regular visitor caught by the tail!
Enjoy a good news story from the industry - re-branding locally caught pilchards as the Cornish Sardine. Catch this short podcast from the BBC's, You and Yours programme on Radio 4. Stars local boats like the Pride of Cornwall and fish merchant Nick Howell, whose Pilchard Museum sadly closed a while back. Slush ice plays a key role in the quest to produce fish of the highest possible quality, a process described by Mark Greet from Fal Fish.

Full force of the heavy swell is evident
7 am on Monday morning and the swell is evident running along the back of the North Quay... Fish Merchant's, Samways are another company with new look transport.... last of the fish going ashore from the St Georges.... that is one very big swell apparent Monday afternoon... just as well the wind was not around the Southerly mark as the combination of deep depression and high tide would have seen the harbour flooded badly....
see a few short clips of the movement evident in the harbour Monday evening.
