Partial blockage of fresh water flow

Fresh water coming in the rig has good flow.
I have good flow from faucets in shower and bathroom/toilet.
The galley sink is very restricted just above a trickle. The screen at the end of the faucet is clear. Is there another screen to clean within the faucet or "upstream" from the faucet. I don't want to take the faucet apart if it is not necessary.

Thanks for your help.

Is the low flow the same on discrete hot and cold positions?

When did this start?

Do you have one of those faucets with a pull out sprayer head? If so, pull it out and see if you get more flow.

Thanks for the replies. Firstly, this started after about 3 months in storage and the faucet does not have a pull out sprayer.
I'm thinking about changing the ceramic cartridge in the stem although I have had it out and it "appears" clean.

I am getting to a solution using a collapsing square search!
Cheers

This really sounds like some junk got into the FW system. Does the water work ok on pump? (Turn off City)...

I had some scale break loose in the Water heater and clogged lines... took some air pressure and patience to get it running WITHOUT filters or the aeration... then put aerator back on only to find they were clogged too!!

Remember.. leave no turn unstoned... :/

Thanks for all your replies. I'm still picking away and am thinking it is probably some bit of stuff blocking the system I get the same results when I use just the water pump.
Cheers,
