Jake Gilbert

Newquay

Boat name

Serene

Fishing Method

Gill Netting, Potting

Jake has been running Serene for the last 8 years and fishes sustainabily by potting for crabs and lobsters out of Newquay harbour. Potting allows Jake to be able to return the undersized shellfish unharmed back to the sea. He occasionally uses gill nets with a specific mesh size to target pollack, allowing smaller fish to swim through and larger to bounce off.
