Experience the height of the fishing industry of Great Grimsby! A job often described as the 'most dangerous peacetime occupation in the UK', these men literally risked their lives in order to bring home fish to a port described as 'the world's premiere fishing port'. Come and see their story!

Many of my family worked in the fishing industry, from my grandad who was a trawler man to uncles that worked on the docks. The National Fishing Heritage Centre brings back old memories of this hard life. A must see.
