Fish Boxes - Hornsea Fishermen

MMO Ref: HOL0060

project delivered stickerProject Name: Fish Boxes - Hornsea Fishermen

Organisation: Andrew Faichney

The project aims to help 6 commercial fishing businesses operating out of the Hornsea boat compound to purchase 50 kg fish boxes, printed with the name of vessel and home port. While some boxes are currently loaned by fish merchants, having dedicated boxes, marked in this way will allow for greater flexibility. The catch of each boat would be easily distinguishable when collected by shellfish merchants. The boxes will be used to collect bait and store nets, making it easy to identify owners, giving more security than current storage arrangements.
