The first national memorial service for the fisherman has been held in Grimsby.

Held at the Lost Fishermen's Memorial in St James' Square, Grimsby, the families of those lost at sea were joined by a number of people who laid wreaths in remembrance.

The event, organized by charity Fishermen's Mission, saw huge crowds gather in the square as they took time to remember those who lost their lives in the industry.

For Grimsby Fishing Heritage Center operations manager David Ornsby, the event was central to what the center is all about. It is a very important day for us.

The Center has celebrated the lives of these men and their unique way of life for more than 30 years.

During the heyday of the industry we lost thousands of lives and many ships, so it is important to remember what these men gave, not only for themselves, but also for the families who have had to come to terms with the loss.

Philip Jackson, Leader of the Council and Portfolio Holder for Economy, Net Zero, Skills and Housing said Grimsby was the perfect place to host the first memorial service.

He said: It is very fitting that the first event is being held in Grimsby. At one time, it was home to the largest fishing port in the country.

He added: The growth of the fishing industry had a massive positive impact on the area as a whole and without it the town would not be what it is today. With this in mind, it is imperative that we pay tribute to those who gave their lives to bring food back to the people of Britain.

Captain Marc Evans, Chief Executive Officer of the Fisherman's Mission

Marc Evans, Chief Executive of Fishermans Mission, was thrilled to have a day dedicated to the memory of people working in one of the most dangerous professions.

People have been fishing for as long as there have been fish in the sea. Over the years there have been many people who have tragically lost their lives for one reason or another.

Fishing is one of the most dangerous professions there is and as it is a national industry I think it is only right that there should be a day dedicated to those who are no longer with us.

Not just for their own sake, but to recognize the impact it has had on their families and friends. I want this day to ensure that we raise awareness of how dangerous fishing really is.

Unless you go to a harbor or buy fresh fish, you may not understand what it means to catch it. A day like this puts into perspective the sacrifice of so many people to bring fish to our shores.
