Photo Category: Fishing vessel loa 70ft/21m and over
Berthed in A Coruña, Blue Gate is making part of an important British-registered fleet based in galician harbours. In fact, since the european fisheries politics toughened, many shipowners found an astute trick in order to get higher quotas: by buying old foreign trawlers that were sold at low price, they could adquire then their fishing licencies. As stated the proverb: "Business is Business!" :-D
