Episode 8

Over the centuries the 29,000 square miles of the English Channel have provided an abundance of fish such as cod, haddock and skate. But in recent decades their numbers have plummeted - in part due to industrial-scale fishing methods.

But it's a volatile and unpredictable way to earn a living, and they can come home with nothing.
