Quota company to 'Quiz Cornwall's Fishermen'

As part of its mission to buy and retain fish quota in Cornwall, the Duchy Fish Quota Company is organising a Cornwall wide 'Test the Fisherman' quiz to test the fishing knowledge of local fishermen and see who is the overall 'Cornish fishing mastermind'.

Company director and question master, David Muirhead who came up with the idea said: "Many fishermen pride themselves on their knowledge of the industry and so this is really a fun way of testing that knowledge while at the same time raising funds and awareness of the company." Individuals or teams can enter, paying £1 each or £5 per team respectively.

The quiz will take place simultaneously at 8 o'clock on Friday 3rd March, with port representatives reading out the questions in Looe, Mevagissey, Cadgwith, Newlyn, Mousehole, Penberth (Logan Rock), St Ives and Newquay. Each port individual or team winner will receive a prize as well as going forward to the grand prize which will be awarded to the highest scorer from around Cornwall.

For further information please contact Nicky Harrison on 01872 270333 or visit

The Duchy Fish Quota Company is supported by South West Pesca and Seafood Cornwall.
