Guernsey fishermen have been enjoying a bumper season for landing flat fish.

Dougal Lane, president of the Guernsey Fisherman's Association, said warmer sea temperatures had led more fish to swim north to Bailiwick waters.

"It's been an incredible year for flat fish, there's never been so many turbot and brill on the ground," he said.

"We seem to be seeing a lot of Mediterranean type bream... we'd never heard of them, and now we see them quite regularly."

Mr Lane raised concerns in November 2011 over warmer temperatures keeping bass away from Guernsey waters.
