Fishing has always been a dangerous occupation but the Moray Firth disaster of 1848, costing the lives of 100 men and wrecking 124 boats, was an exceptional event that led to improvements in the design of vessels and harbours along the east coast. This history of commercial fishing begins with a discussion about the earliest practitioners of the ancient world before exploring the development of the industry in British waters up to the modern era.
