The Female Fisherman - Ashley Mullenger

As consumers we are often disconnected from the origin of our food. Commercial Fisherman of the Year, Ashley Mullenger is passionate about sharing what happens at sea, to land fish onto our plates.

From office worker to owner of two fishing vessels, her memoir introduces us to the story of early mornings, weather-beaten characters and coworkers that can sink pints as fast as they can haul pots.

As one of the few women in the profession, Ashley shares her story with humour and warmth, introducing us to age old fishing communities and shining light on the increasingly difficult conditions the UK’s seafood industry works within.
