Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 14 October 2013

It's MM!


Plenty of big white fish from the Ajax as she ekes out her hake quota for the rest of the year...



together with the Govenek of Ladram they fill the western end of the market this Monday morning...


the biggest fish of the trip at 6.5Kg or one stone in old money (that's 14lbs) fish this size would make sometimes make over £120 per stone at Christmas - a hake would be the centrepiece of an affluent family's Christmas Dinner table...


the reds are bright and cheerful this morning, shining examples from the Lisa Jacquelineas ever...


there's a few squid around even for the beamers...


and a good run of mackerel for the handline boats...




the inshore trawler keeps dumped gear out of the prop this week and touches on a few squids!
