Hake fishing - the Ajax at sea

Landing at 9am on Bank Holiday Monday morning in time for the 22 nd Fish Festival, the Newlyn netter Ajax put over 30 boxes of fish ashore after a lightning two day trip in order to land top quality hake for use on displays and the fish filleting competition.  Festival organisers were lucky enough to have Cornophile Caroline Quentin on hand to perform the opening ceremony and she also made time to watch the crew of the Ajax land their fish alongside the market. Expect to see footage of her talking to the crew and skipper Alan Dwan in her forthcoming TV series n ITV later this year.
