main market:Wright Brothers’ restaurants at Helford and London, also Ocean Fish

boat name: Amanda J

boat reg: FH 9

Types of fishing: Line fishing for mackerel, whiting, pollack and bass, also potting for crab and lobster from spring to autumn. All fish caught throughout the year are placed, as soon after capture as possible, into the slush ice tub. At home I have a commercial Ziegra ice plant to ensure continual ice supply. Fish quality is, in my opinion, paramount.
