The East Anglian herring fishing industry can trace its roots back to before the Norman's arrived in 1066. The main ports, and great rivals were Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft. This continued when local entrepreneur Samuel Morton Peto built a new fish market in Lowestoft to connect with main railways in 1882. It was then possible to land fish one morning and have the catch available in the fish market of Manchester or London by the next. In this book, Ian Robb who lives in Lowestoft and joined the local fishing fleet in 1962, draws together the stories of those who can remember, providing a lasting record for generations to come.
