Frida's fishy feast!


Top quality hake from the...


Sparkling Line filled the western end of the market...


top turbot...



were among the best of the beam trawler fish up for auction...



with Megrim and  ...



 Dover sole from the Trevessa IV.....


all getting the data collection treatment from Cefas...


there was a sense of urgency in the air...


as the scales were kept busy...


a sample nmber of the otoliths of haddock collected...


and the overall lengt duly recorded...


as is often the case at this time of year, the sun up looks surreal.
