Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Thursday, 30 October 2014

Tiz foggy or "Thick as a bag" as they say in these parts


Tom peers across Mount's Bay through the morning mist...


as the Govenek of Ladram prepares to land...


this time of year there's a good mix of fish for auction...


though these UK plaice are diminishing off the wet fish counters as the quota cuts begin to bite in Area VII...


a fullish market for the beam trawlers...


the punts are fishing huge squid close inshore...


while this tub gurnard would probably break the UK angling record...


even the dory season seems to have been extended by the fine weather...


best bass will be winging their way to Wings soon enough...


as the fish fly of the market to the waiting transport...


the Govenek gets to land her fish.
