Demersal trawls are large nets that are pulled through the water with the bottom edge of the net touching the seabed. At each edge the net is held open by metal ‘trawl doors’. Demersal trawling is sometimes referred to as Otter trawling.

“I met Johnny as his first customer in Cornwall.  From that moment, he has not only been the most incredible fish merchant I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with, but also a great friend  and an inspiration.  His knowledge for all things fish and general outlook on life, makes me smile”
