Quality fish shine through Monday's market


The finest pollack landed today...


as the sun makes its way across the Bay...


footrope detail showing the short lengths of chain that help to prevent flatfish like Dover sole and lemons from going underneath and escaping the net....



on a new rig...


for the port's biggest trawler the Crystal Sea III...




time to hunt down some breakfast...


picking up the fish form the cod end...


looks like the Ripple has been caught under the canopy of the quay, luckily high water has passed...


two of the big new boats prove white is a popular choice of colour...


the huge beam of the Serene Dawn is evident, she is nearly as wide as the Lyonesse a catamaran...


yet another visiting wind farm service boat visiting...


plenty of fish for Monday's market...


with plenty of summertime megrim 'Cornish' soles...


and a real dollop of Dorys...


some fish are by Royal Appointment, but what fish Paris?...


this year some of the boats have been trawling up ever-increasing amounts of litter including dozens of lost pots...


necessitating towing the cod end still over the stern of the boat into the harbour to haul the fish aboard safely
