Accidents and Incidents:

From the Western Telegraph of Wednesday 8th January 1986:


    'Lemberg' joins fishing fleet


   The depleted Milford Haven fishing fleet will be boosted in the next month when the latest arrival at the port sails with local deckhands among her crew.  The 115-foot Lemberg, which arrived at Milford recently, takes the size of the local fleet to six.

    And its presence at the port is the first positive step, following a two-day seminar - organised late last year by Preseli District Council - into the future of the Milford Haven fishing industry.

    The Lemberg is owned by Plymouth-based trawler owner and manager, Mr. John Couciero, who attended the seminar.  The vessel will be based locally and the crew will be drawn from Common Market countries.  It will include three young deckhands from Milford Haven.

    The local agent for the vessel, Mr. Peter Wright, said that all fish landed by the trawler will be offered to merchants at the port.  If the experiment is successful it could mean other boats from the Plymouth-based company sailing out of Milford Haven
