What’s in the Lobster Pot?

When Phil Lockley started fishing after having trained as a marine biologist he was amazed at the wealth of marine life he found in his pots when he brought them to the surface; not just lobsters or crabs, but all sorts of creatures would be drawn to the bait inside the pot, such as dogfish, conger eels and cuttlefish.  Today he will bring ashore a couple of his pots for us to examine the marine life within and to talk about the creatures that have found their way into his traps.
