CHASM Film 2022
Fishing has been a part of Selsey Bill, West Sussex and the surrounding areas since the Bronze Age. Local fishermen tell of huge changes to the fishing grounds in recent years, about the small numbers of lobsters being caught locally, and large influxes of sediment arriving in their fishing grounds.
Needing to understand these changes led to the development of the CHASM project in early 2020. This short film provides an overview of the project aims and objectives. Denny Arnell, a fisherman from Selsey and member of one of the oldest fishing families in Selsey (circa 1700's) talks about the changes he has seen in recent years, and the CHASM team talk about the kind of research being done in these early project stages.
