Fishing boats start to leave Brighton Marina as the sun rises over the city. The camera joins one boat out at sea as the fishermen pulls in its haul of lobsters and crabs - the lobster pots and smaller crustaceans are thrown back into the water. Back in the Marina fishermen work on their boats. One fisherman mends his nets outside the Brighton Fishing Museum. When the boats return, their hauls are raised onto the harbourside where the live crustaceans are released into vats of water. Elsewhere, crates of fish are put on ice. Fish are sorted on a factory conveyor belt. A fish and chip shop in the King's Road Arches serves the local catch, whilst a seagull picks at the carcass of a fish. The fishermen's day ends with the hosing down of their vessels.
