This booklet provides a socialist assessment of the fishing industry, and in the words of Jack Ashwell (T&GWU Hull Fishing Officer) in the foreword, 'This pamphlet will serve to promote discussion leading, I hope, to full control of the industry by the workers'. Jack also writes 'Already, important sections of the industry - bobbers and lumpers - have called for nationalisation. The West Hull Labour Party has gone even further and called for nationalisation with worker's control. Democratic control of the industry is a necessity long overdue'

The booklet includes sections on Technical, Landings Imports and Exports, Distribution, Government Assistance,Monopoly Structure in the Industry, and Labour.

The condition of the booklet is very poor, but is perfect as a reading copy or reference for study. The covers are tatty, with lots of scuffs, creases and wear, and discoloration along the edges (most noticeable in the top and bottom right hand corners of the front cover). Inside, the staple spine is intact and all pages are intact, unblemished and bound.
