    Liverpool fishing industry was probably ended with the sale to Milford of the last 3 trawlers Celtia, Goosander,and Gallinule in 1939.
    Then on it was only small boat owners who made a living catching and selling the fish.
    The last full time fisherman,from the Mersey was my brother John seen here mending his nets on the "Cocklehole" slipway in the 1960`s, with his boat the Comrade just below him
