Modern purse seining first became a feature of UK fishing practice in 1966. This book tells the story of purse seine fishing by British vessels since then and also considers different methods of fishing employed by the purse seiners, the majority of which were multi-purpose vessels.

The book lists all of the British vessels which adopted the modern method of purse seining, giving technical details of them and brief details of their careers and of their ultimate fates
