West Coast Fishing – An industry of opportunity
Mark Guy – a fisherman’s tale
Mark Guy is the owner of the FV Bengal Bank, fishing out of Greymouth.
He started fishing out of Bluff as soon as he left school so he has been in the industry for quite some time. Mark has built up a wealth of experience and knowledge over the years.
Coaster’s Weekly had chance meeting with Mark and we recorded his tale of life as a fisherman and got his view on the industry as a whole. We were impressed with Mark’s depth of knowledge about the fishing industry. And we were encouraged to hear of the opportunities the industry presents for young people looking for a career. We discovered a young person can take up a fishing career and within three years could be earning $120k plus a year! That’s excellent prospects by anyone’s reckoning.
