Gill Netting

Gill nets are lightweight nets made of fine monofilament nylon line. They are virtually invisible to fish when in the water. The nets are anchored to the seabed and fish of the correct size push their head through the mesh and become snagged on their gills, hence the name.

“We’ve been using Flying Fish for a number of years now. Their experience and understanding of the seasons, fish markets and chef requirements makes them ideal partners for The Hand and Flowers. The high standard of fish we receive on a daily basis from the Cornish day boats is outstanding and is an essential part of the produce driven menu that we have here at the pub”
