Photographer's Note

the emulate one of whitby`s fishing fleet returning safely to port with her catch of white fish , government and eec quoters mean that this type of vessel is tied up in port for up to 14 days a month and next year who knows it could be even longer.

Whitby was one a thriving fishing port with around 20 large trawlers but now this has reduced to around 9 and only a couple of these are fishing for white fish the rest are targeting prawns and scallops.

The two small boats coming in with the emulate are local fishing party boats who take trips to sea for between 6 and 8 hours fishing and the yellow one in the distance is the esk belle which does trips to sea and also night candlelight cruises up the coast to staithes

At this time of year the pier extensions are ful of anglers fishing for mackerel which are abundant at this time of year
