Another Local Lobster Trap Tag Shows Up On Perranporth Beach Cornwall England!

Dear Joe,

I wrote to you in November 2012 about a fishing tag from the Net Profit, from when it was owned by the late Joe Ciaramitaro.

Last Thursday I found a tag from F/V Endeavour. When I looked it up on Google it looks as though it comes from your area, so I thought that you might be interested. I don’t find many of the rectangular tags, all the ones that I have found are mounted on a board on my garage wall. I thought that you might know some of their owners or where they come from.

As you will see from the photo we do find quite a lot of lobster trap tags. Here in Perranporth  Cornwall most of the them are from Newfoundland and Labrador. We have had a lot of storms this winter & unusually high tides for the last three months. This has resulted in large quantities of plastic being washed up – some from across the Atlantic & a lot from more local places.

Best Wishes,

Chris Easton
