The Fishing Life

Danny Platten - 2The Fishermen’s Mission approached us to record memories of ex Hull trawlermen and their families for the exhibition ‘There’s Something Fishy Going on in Hull’ celebrating the lives of the people involved in this fascinating industry. The full length versions of these interviews are available to listen to as part of the main archive on this website. You can access them by clicking here.

We also created this short film about life in the fishing industry, the adventure and excitement that made the the job special, despite the dangers and hardships of being away from families for long periods of time.
