“The climate here is unpredictable. We sometimes leave in the morning with the sun beating down on us and the sea nice and calm, to find ourselves shrouded in fog by lunchtime. No matter how harsh the conditions: we must continue. However, I do love my job and being outdoors. I wouldn't change a single thing about my life.”

The Roberts family consists of 5 brothers, all of whom have a specific role in the team. Coltan and Tristan started fishing with their father and grandfather at a really young age. The conditions are often difficult here. In December, for example, the temperature can drop to -40°.
