At the heart of the fishing industry

Katy Jack enjoys a unique insight into the fishing operations of 16th-century Crail, and the men and women who contributed to the industry’s success

Crail and Its Fisheries

Thomas Riis

The Strathmartine Press, 2016

193 pages:

Paperback, £14.99

ISBN: 9780995544109

One of several picturesque fishing villages located on the coast of Fife’s East Neuk, Crail’s reputation as a charming harbour town belies its historic importance to Scotland’s fishing industry. Thomas Riis, in this seminal work on Crail and its fisheries, attempts to look past the quaint cobbled streets and vernacular architecture that prove such a draw for visitors to the village, shedding light on the significance of this former royal burgh and its status as ‘probably the main fishing centre in the Firth of Forth’ in the second half of the 16th century (vii).
