Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 7 February 2014

Another weather-window fishing opportunist - the Govenek of Ladram fishes off the Lizard


With an eye on fresh fish markets europe wide being almost devoid of fish to buy a handful of boats from Newlyn have nipped awau form the port for 48 hours to secure a landing for Monday's market - when their fish will be some of the only fresh fish of any quantity to come up for auction the length and breadth of the UK.



On the downside, apart from the impending apocalyptic (according to the Daily Mail) weather due to arrive overnight the Govenek is fishing where much of the traffic passing the Lizard passes - so the boys will have to be extra vigilant on deck when hauling, shooting and on watch at night.
