The option to have a child is taken away from me. I decide: to feel paralized/optimistic. Not easy as moments of depression drift by like clouds of different types of weather. It's not a mindset that I want to give my child, I need to offer more.

I strolled along the harbor of Saint Tropez which is full of boats of the rich. I wondered if there were still some fishing boats. To my surprise I found Eric who was cleaning his nets. He told me that there used to be 40 fishers in St. Tropez. ‘’Now there are only 7 left.’’

Michael's first boat: ‘’The boat here alongside the house, I was 12 years when we got her. That’s why she’s up here, she’s sentimental value. We paid a thousand pounds but she was brand new.’’ ‘’Can you still use here?’’ ‘’No, you’d be swimming.’’

Mickey: '’Our biggest problem: salmon is disappearing. The difference in fish is savage, but I heard the lads complain when I started fishing 36 years ago that it’d gone way down. So, fish was better before I even started.’’ Full story @

Atlantic salmon isn’t doing well. Sally: ‘’The commercial men are so caught up with their licenses. Every single fish that Michael brings in has to be recorded, weighted, and an individual tag has to be put in them, and they have to take scale samples.''

Sal's now smoking ray: ‘’We’re looking at restaurants because they’re brilliant as your first customer, they’ll do the advertisement for you. When a chef likes your products and you come out with a new product, they’re much more inclined to give it a go.''

Sal's worried: ''It might be plastics; it could be algal bloom, specifically here where chemicals of the land get washed into the sea and we get big algal blooms when sea temperatures are rising. Whatever it is, something’s stressing the fish…’’
