Fishing Boats of Scotland North Fife

Fishing Boats of Scotland. Like the post below, a boat at the end of its life. Once the fishing industry was huge in Scotland with working Ports all around the coasts, up the Estuaries as here in north fife on the the River Tay. The catch here was Salmon, sea Trout, eels and Sparling, it has very much finished as different species become less through over fishing though the quota system demands that fish caught inadvertently have to be returned to the water if not allowed to be landed. I recently met a trawler-man from Orkney who related how quite large catches of Cod have to be jettisoned to remain lawful. Bizarre.
