    Wow, that`s awesome, there are huge bounty`s out there for shellfish. I have a friend who owns a cockle boat and the prices they return has gone through the roof, although limited by quotas his average daily income is in excess of £25,000, this, unlike the high risk crab fishing etc in the Bering Sea, comes almost danger free and his hunting grounds are just a few miles off the coast. But, when done incorrectly and working for a none safety at work orientated boss the results can be deadly..........

    I worked on a Shrimp/Prawn boat for 7 years. We would be out at Sea for 9 months of the year. Do one season of Tiger prawns for 4 months and do Banana Prawns for 5 months of the year.
    At the age of 17 I was making between $80,000-$120,00 per year. This was 14 years ago though.
    I have to say was the best job I have ever had.

    My current BF worked on a crab boat for a year, he was making £4000 a week,(so he told me) pity he wasn't working there now lol.

    Trying to get work here now is REDICULOUS, there is NO WORK, how do you get out of a rut(literally) when there is no work, I wish I could rewind the years to 2000 :(, (but still have my beautiful children)

    Not so long ago cockle prices went through the roof and were fetching around £2500 a ton, his boat holds ten ton. He is however restricted to quotas.

    And that is using the old fashioned rake and pillage method, imagine using the industrial size Hoovers that the boats use ;).

    Those prices don't surprise me at all. I also have a friend who still works on a Tuna boat they go out and catch 3-4 Tuna a day and make over $15,000 just for those 3-4 fish.
    Japanese LOVE there seafood and have NO problem in spending the big money for good quality stuff.

    They will pay $6,000-$15,000 per Tuna without hesitation.
