Fears for the future of fishing in Guernsey

Mr Guille said running costs were up while sales were down

A Guernsey fisherman who has worked in island waters for 25 years fears for the future of the industry.

The Commerce and Employment Department said as 2009 was a difficult year with depressed market prices it could have led to workers leaving the industry.

That view is echoed by fisherman Michael Guille who believes the future looks bleak.

He said: "Sales aren't as good... out running costs are more expensive so you go backwards instead of forwards."
