Lockley is a small-scale, artisanal fisherman from Cornwall. He works from one of the most
beautiful ‘rivers’ of Cornwall, the Helford River, as part of a small fleet of
18 vessels, each measuring under 10m in length.
Rarely do I need an alarm clock. My winter day begins without
prompting at 05.00hrs GMT; a routine shared by countless other European
artisanal fishermen who prepare for their day of work.
I willingly and lovingly hunt for fish and shellfish. It’s not
just a job. To many it is a way of life.
