Location description (1957)
The Cattewater. A trawling ground off the Batten R.A.F. Station, partly over a smooth rocky bottom, is useful for prawns during the summer. Small wrasse and Spinachia also occur. A ground more frequently trawled is the main channel between Oreston and Laira Bridge, from which a regular supply of Carcinus maenas is procured, as well as Crangon vulgaris and Gobius minutus. Shoals of mysids occur here, as farther up the estuary, and may be taken with a hand-net.
