Abstract: The 1970/71 winter herring fishery off the south coast, based mainly at the ports of Dunmore East and Cobh, began in the week ending 14th November, 1970, and ended on the 4th February, 1971. Eighty boats, seven more than in the 1969/70 season, took part in the fishery and landed a total of 110,816 crans. The total landing, which was an increase of 13,880 crans on the quantity for the previous season, was the highest yet recorded. During the season landings were made on 63 days out of a possible 74. The weather, which prior to Christmas had been reasonably favourable, deteriorated during January and brought fishing to a standstill on a number of occasions. This factor, together with the disappearance of the shoals in early February, closed the fishing season earlier than in the previous four seasons. All herrings landed were auctioned at either Dunmore East or Cobh.
