More climate change evidence? - first landing this year of unusual sardine



Landed during the early hours of this morning at the fish market in Newlyn...



just over three tonnes of a rare sardine normally found in the Mediterranean...

It's thought the fish swim using their lateral line to navigate

known as Sardina Caecus or Blind Sardine - skipper Dan thinks this is the first time they have been caught in any quantity in Cornish waters. He said, "catching the fish was made difficult as they were swimming so slow I nearly overshot the mark and missed them!".
