At sea with Eoin

Eoin’s prawn trawler the Caroline M. is recognised by the ship-loader operators when he steams past the titanic machines and ships of Australia's largest iron ore export terminal.  On Western Australia's Pilbara coast Eoin is returning home to Point Samson, a nearby fishing village. 

Lucrative wages have drawn people here from all over the world competing for jobs; the most highly paid unskilled labour on earth. The majority of local residents now work in the mines and Eoin is now Point Samson's last remaining fisherman.
