A busy night-time scene on board the SS RIGHTO, a North Sea fishing trawler, operating from Grimsby in Lincolnshire. The original caption states that "the third hand (left) is re-tying the slipknot on the codend. The skipper (right) examines the catch, sorts out the prime fish. Mate and deckhands are getting ready to recast the trawl. In the foreground are baskets of gutted fish from the previous trawl. This means that there has not been time to get them below before the next haul was made". Most of the men are wearing raincoats and sou'westers.
