DolphinFest 2019 – Aberdeen
Visit to the MFV Nereus in Gairloch.
They got a full tour of a working freezer prawn trawler. The Nereus is based in Gairloch but works all over the UK. Terry is a 5th generation fishermen and his family originally fished herring and Terry started work fishing when he was young and fished until today he got this boat built new 6 years ago. The boat registration ‘INS 172’ is the same his great-grandfather had on a herring boat in Avoch in 1903! The Sea Savers and Living Seas took a tour of the boat to learn a bit about how it works: the wheelhouse, net areas, sorting area, freezers, hold, galley, accommodation and engine room. We also heard about the long hours fishermen like Terry work – often all daylight hours and away at sea for weeks at a time with shorts breaks home with their family. The boat costs, equipment, fuel, food and wages all mean the boat must work hard to make a living for the crew and skipper/owner Terry. Thank you to Terry for the opportunity to tour your boat and learn a bit about life fishing and what it involves. Sea Savers want to protect our seas but also ensure they understand all sides of the issues at hand and how balances and meetings like this hopefully help everyone to work together to look after our seas best as well as livelihoods and making sure our communities can keep people and families in the Highlands too.
