Newlyn Fishing-21.jpg

On the crabber 'William Harvey'.<br />
<br />
The crabs are mainly female and are taken back to Newlyn the same day, where they are stored in sea water holding tanks for a short period of time before they are processed.<br />
<br />
Shellfishing does not damage the environment and anything caught that isn't big enough is returned to the sea alive to carry on breeding.<br />
<br />
W. Harvey & Sons, who own the boat and processing sites in Newlyn, are the UK's largest shellfish provider.
