All at sea - In a fast changing world the Dorset fishing family still going strong after 350 years.<br />
<br />
Young Levi Miller is ensuring the survival of his family's 350-year-old seafaring tradition - by becoming it's tenth generation of Dorset fisherman. The 16-year-old's ancestors have been fishing off the Dorset coast since Henry Miller first set sail in the 1670s. <br />
<br />
Levi has now become the latest family member to choose a life on the waves and has begun learning the trade onboard his father's fishing boat. Levi got hooked on fishing as a child and despite only just finishing school, he says there is nowhere else he would rather be than hauling in fish alongside his dad and to play his own part in his family's historic trade.
