Trip to Newlyn

On 19th March 2009 at 5:30 in the morning we set off to Newlyn fish market. The aim of the trip was to understand more about the fishing industry and pressures facing the fishing industry today. The trip was linked with the mini conference to be held by the Marine Environmental Management and Marine Science students at the Poly, Falmouth on Thursday 26th March. The Conference is entitiled "The end of the line for fisheries"

Here are a few pics.
