Cove fishermen take a huge shot of grey mullet in Sennen harbour #eatmorefish

At this time of year the Sennen Cove fishermen keep their eyes peeled for the big shoals of grey mullet that sometimes come close in to the shore, last night was no exception when their huge beach seine was shot and around 6 tons of fish caught in one go...



the fish then went on the market this morning...



with a huge haul of fish like this the merchants probably need to know in advance if they are to stand a chance of getting a good price for a fish normally landed in very small quantities...


being bottom feeders the fish have a great flavour and meaty texture...


they would grace any plate in any decent restaurant up and down the country for Easter...


one fish would feed a big family gathering for sure...


and with the catch stacked eight boxes high...


there's plenty to go around...


once sold they fly off the market...
