Aquila is also a registered fishing vessel with the numbers FY324.

We are also a members of the SWHFA.

(South West Handline Fishermen Association).

When we are not chartering we are fishing commercially for Mackerel.

The SWHFA was originally set-up to represent the many mackerel hand line boats fishing in SW England and in 2000, the Association was one of the first to receive accreditation from the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) for the SW Handline Mackerel Fishery.

Today, the members fish for mackerel almost 12-months of the year. We tend to fish at dawn and dusk using lines of 25 or 30 hooks baited only with brightly coloured feathers or plastic tubing.

with two or three crew per boat. Now often having to travel up to 50 miles a day to search for fish.

We take great care to ensure that the fish we catch reaches the market in peak condition. As soon as the fish are brought onto the boat we store them in a ‘slush-ice’ mix to bring the core temperature of the fish to 0oC as soon as possible. fish such as Pollack and Bass are Tagged with the boats own tags to show the buyer that their fish has been sustainably caught and are in top condition.

Our TAG No. is TAG64.
