Fishing is not an industry. It's a passion. That passion grips people of all backgrounds, all ages. Some are hunters, who would catch the last fish in the world if they could. Some are men (or women) of the sea, happy only when the deck is moving beneath their feet, the engine is turning over with a steady beat, and the seabirds are screaming.Some are skilled shipwrights. Some are conservationists, keen observers of their environment, deeply concerned about fish stocks and catches. Those who catch fish are only one part of the equation. There are those who work in the factory decks of trawlers or in filleting lines ashore. There are those who fill the windows of their shops with fish of all shapes and sizes. There are those who travel the world with briefcases and laptop computers, searching for markets, doing deals. There are those who spend their time matching fishing quotas with catches, juggling shortfalls and by-catches, matching catches and production facilities with markets. There are those who regulate, make rules, try to catch poachers. There are those who sample, dissect, analyse and count, adding meaning to their endless mathematics.
