Fishing boats at Alderburgh

A commercial fishing fleet is now a thing of the past at Aldeburgh.  Skipper Dean Fryer explains why:  ‘Bureaucracy, paperwork, over-the-top EU  quotas and the rising costs of simply fuelling and maintaining a boat has driven most fishermen out of business.’

Nevertheless, fishing seems to be a part of the DNA for many.  The high tide line along the beach is marked by a sprinkling of small boats and, behind them, a row of black fishermen’s huts.  Typically a catch might include sole, skate, bass, flounder, lobster and/or crab.

The shingle beach shelves steeply and ‘vintage’ tractors are used to haul the boats to safe dry land.
