Memories of the Lancashire Fishing Industry

Product Description

Using first-hand accounts, this book traces the history of Lancashire's fishing industry - the boom times of the 1940s, the later decline and current fight for survival.

Over the last 70 years or so, Lancashire's fishing industry has gone from boom in the 1940s to bust in the 1970s, and more recently to quotas and a more modest success. Author Ron Freethy describes shrimp and salmon netting based on Glasson Dock near Lancaster, cockle picking in Morecombe Bay; the Mersey fishing fleet, who used to catch the largest number of whitebait in Europe; and Fleetwood at one time home to many deep-sea trawlers and the third most important fishing port in Britain.

This book is a proud record of Lancashire's fishing heritage for those who were part of it and those too young to remember.
