Ye shall have a fishy……
…..on a little dishy
Ye shall have a fishy,
when the boat comes in!
The words of a traditional Tyneside folk song evoke a time when North Shields fish quay had a thriving fleet of trawlers, drifters, and sundry other fishing vessels working from the River Tyne. That was before EU fishing quotas regulated the market to conserve North Sea fish stocks. The scene now is of smaller and fewer vessels landing smaller catches, and we watch from South Shields wondering how they survive economically in such a distorted market.
This shot was taken from Harbour View in South Shields.
