A message in a bottle sent from #Plymouth has bobbed up after 108 years!
The communication thrown into sea by Plymouth biologist in 1906 from #Marine Biological Association: Citadel Laboratory has been found by a German woman and has been confirmed as oldest in the world!
The association, founded in 1884, still exists and is an internationally renowned marine research institution. Although there was astonishment when the post arrived, Bidder’s name was still familiar in Plymouth, as in a remarkably long working life he had served as president of the association between 1939-45. He died in 1954 aged 91. His messages in bottles helped him prove for the first time that the deep sea current in the North Sea flowed from east to west! http://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/apr/19/message-bottle-washed-ashore-108-years-worlds-oldest

In this article, Dave Cuthbert of Plymouth Trawler Agents calls for more co-operation between the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs and the Marine Management Organisation. Plymouth Trawler Agents operates an electronic auction system for ‪#‎PlymouthFisheries‬ at Sutton Harbour. He says, “Part of the reason for the growth of Plymouth Fisheries is that fishermen trusted Plymouth Trawler Agents." He admitted that engagement was a barrier they had to overcome. “You need to get out to people, have face-to-face meetings, that’s a challenge”. http://ow.ly/YnEiH
