Tour Scotland Video Excel Creel Boat Returning To Harbour St Andrews Fife
Tour Scotland video of the creel boat Excel returning to the harbour on visit to St Andrews, Fife, Scotland. The earliest records of creel lobster fishing in Scotland date back to the 12th century when lobster was caught by hand using crooks and hoop nets. With the development of baited traps, exploitation on a more commercial basis was developed, and today creel fishing for the European lobster, Homarus gammarus, supports very important local fisheries around the Scottish coast.
