Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 9 June 2014

Magnifique Monday mainly megrim and monk





Anatomy of an inshore trawl - the two heavy rubber discs or 'bobbins' are the beginning of the trawl footrope - they provide the heavy protection for the rest of the trawl as it is dragged along the bottom...



plenty of big blondes (ray) on the market this morning...



pristine white underside of a turbot, to fish for the top table...



sometimes turbot have the upper side pigment on their underside...



the little know Lapin fish is a rare visitor to Cornish waters...



many monk...



and megrim made up a huge trip for the Twilight III...



including a few boxes of langoustine meaning she must have been fishing to the north east of the Scillies...



the paint job is looking good on the little girl of the port.
