    Guernsey fishing industry has existed for over 500 years, the mainstay of the local economy throughout the Middle Ages. Fish were caught, salted or dried in Guernsey and Sark, then shipped as far as Southern France. Several local traditions have their roots firmly fixed in the early years of the industry, including the Guernsey jumper, which was derived in the 17th Century. The oiled-woolen jumper was designed for fishermen to protect them from the elements. Pictured: local chancre crab.
