Goal 1

To protect vessels associated with the ring net fishing industry

The trust will restore historic ring net vessels, beginning with the Shemaron, to a historically accurate standard.

The trust will also maintain Shemaron, in order to keep her seaworthy and therefore safeguarding her for the future.

Goal 2

To increase public interest and encourage community engagement with the ring net’s heritage

Through working with local museums and heritage organisations we will promote the heritage of the ring net industry.

The trust will curate, preserve and display artefacts and information about the ring net era.

We will inform the public about this heritage through enabling public access to a registered historic ring net boat during open days, traditional boat events and visits by interested organisations.

The trust will provide an accessible platform via the internet, the ring net boat Shemaron, and through partner organisations in order to educate, engage, and encourage interest and participation.
