This week, Paul Trebilcock and Chris Ranford take us back to the quayside to speak to Seafood Cornwall's Safety Advisor, Clive Palfrey, to talk about how fishermen can utilise their time in isolation to think about safety on their vessels and get ready for when lockdown is lifted. Clive also reminds all fishermen that the social distance measurement is 'one fathom' and explains why it's important to stick to government advice.
Paul and Chris also speak to young fisherman, Tom Lambourn, who gives an insight into his ‘customer experience’ dealing with the MMO, MCA and Ship Register remotely whilst the COVID-19 crisis unfolded. Tom managed to get this vessel registered, MFF grant approved and make a start on fishing commercially from his vessel 'My Lass'.
