Netting silversides on the Stanley River

The silverside fishery is in full swing across the Island, including Stanley Bridge, and the Stanley River, where these photos were taken of fishermen bringing in several tubs of the small, highly priced fish, which is used to feed marine animals and increasingly to bait lobster traps. Catches appeared to lower so far this year. The season runs to late November.
