Essential equipment for the fishing fleet

Fishing was a major industry in Scarborough with the trawlers going to areas such as the Dogger Bank to catch fish. At one time it was up to the skill of the skipper to decide where to fish, using his experience and watching the natural signs such as sea bird behaviour. As technology developed, electronic equipment could assist the skipper and make fishing more reliable. This included the development of echo sounders.
