ALL ABOARD THE COLINNE















Turbot, sole, dabs, plaice, scallops, skate - just some of the amazing fish that are caught off the  Lancashire and Cumbria coastline.

Twelve joined Fleetwood fisherman Steve Welsh aboard his family trawler, The Colinne, to experience life on the Irish Sea and find out what it really takes to bring this incredible produce to our plates.

Steve's Dad, is the skipper of The Colinne, and he's been fishing out of Fleetwood for more than 40 years.

In the last few years they established the family firm, Welfish, to supply langoustine, also known as Dublin Bay prawns, to restaurants like Twelve. Today, The Colinne is virtually the last locally owned trawler still fishing from Fleetwood.


We were also joined by the Editor of Lancashire Life, Roger Borrell and photographer Kirsty Thompson.

With the salty wind and rain in our faces, The Colinnne took us for a two-hour round trip. Then it was back to Twelve for lunch: langoustine lightly battered with a caper mayonnaise; pork belly and scallop starter; turbot served with fennel, lardons and a celeriac puree.
