‘Guardians of the Reef’

This project will uncover and share stories of shellfishing in South Devon through a series of heritage events, exhibitions and film screenings.
Delivered in partnership by Storylines and the South Devon and Channel Shellfishermen Association, the project will conduct a series of oral history interviews with shellfishermen, many whose families have fished for generations, transforming these into a series of digital stories, films and displays, thus documenting a largely unrecorded part of this unique coastal heritage.
