Supertrawlers vs. small-scale fishers

Regular shoppers at the farmers' market may have noticed a decline in the amount of fish on sale last Saturday from our fisherfolk Martin and Wendi, whose two small boats fish in the waters up to 6 miles off Newhaven. Martin, like many of the fishers who go out from Newhaven harbour, has been out looking for fish every day over the last few weeks and found almost none. The sea is almost empty of the fish that should be prolific at this time of year.
