Trawlermen - series on BBC !! by Where are you now? on 4 August 2006 10:35pm
 
Well it was a fascinating insight into how fish are caught in the high seas - prawns too = the work that has to go into finding the fish etc the men on the trawlers more than earn the money they get - they work hard in freezing conditions - it was a great weeks worth of viewing - hope they do another series sometime! any one else out there catch the programmes?

I didn't see that one. Saw something similar about Alaskan Crab fishermen. It is a rough life. Read the book and see the movie The Perfect Storm. (About Gloucester, Massachusetts fishermen). Remember the line in Moby Dick. When you buy fish, you're buying mens lives.
