One of the recent additions to the fleet, Amanda of Ladram targets mainly hake in waters off the South-West of England using static fishing gear. This low-impact method is used to strategically place nets where fish are expected to be migrating, and the large mesh size ensures that juvenile fish pass through the netting and escape safely. Netting is used primarily to fish for hake, as well as for haddock and pollock, while at certain times when the tides are right, trammel nets are used to fish for turbot and monkfish. With trips kept to only a few days for maximum freshness, the delicate hake that comes across Amanda of Ladram’s gunwale is treated with care as it is boxed and iced on board, with each box lowered by hand down into the hold.
