Abstract: The 1969/70 herring fishery began on the south coast in the week ending 15th November, 1969, and ended on the 25th February, 1970. Some small amounts of herrings had, however, been taken prior to the middle of November. Seventy three boats took part in the fishery, compared with fifty nine during the 1968/69 season. A total of 96,936 crans was landed, which was the highest on record and an increase of 26,155 crans on the figure for the previous season. Landings were made on 69 days out of a possible 81. The weather which, prior to Christmas, had been very favourable to fishing , deteriorated during January and thereafter caused many interruptions. As in the two previous seasons, marketing problems caused fishing to be suspended on a number of occasions and this restricted catches for considerable periods. All herrings taken throughout the season were auctioned at either Dunmore East or Cobh.
