Flying Fish

Flying fish, black pilchards, holy mackerel!!

No these are 'herrings' - manufactured in metal. These fish are a nod to the herring industry that made Fishguard well known.

Lower Fishguard developed as a herring fishery and port, trading with Ireland, Bristol and Liverpool.

In the late 18th century it had 50 coasting vessels, and exported oats and salt herring.
The port declined in the latter half of the 19th century.

The sculpture sits along Quay Street in Lower Fishguard.
Cool composed shot of this sculpture.
