When the Boat Comes In
Introducing ‘Mr Fish’, Kevin Hanger; fresh, local fish direct to your door
You could say I’ve always loved the sea, from fishing as a boy to enjoying spearfishing around local areas and further field later in life. Having spent 22 years working in the building industry, I found myself looking for a change. Someone told me when you do what you love you’ll never work again, so I followed my dreams and, three years ago, became a commercial fisherman. I invested in a boat, took and passed all the qualifications to become a captain, and never looked back.
Even the early mornings and 12-hour days can’t put me off!My boat, Shearwater, is docked in Weymouth Harbour, and I primarily fish for bass and shellfish. All my fish is sustainably line caught and, although I sell to the market, I find it most rewarding to sell fish to my fellow Dorset residents.
