Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.




Fish Expo 2018




Wednesday, 19 November 2014

Wednesday's not so busy market


The first landing for the Ajax is the only fish at this end of the market...


as the 2-3Kg hake go up for auction...


the boat landed a good shot of big white fish like these 2-3 Kg pollack...


keeping the buyers interested...


as the hake was sold first...


it's all smiles from the fish wondering where they will be headed next...


Newlyn has become the top hake port in the UK...


and clearing the fish off the market is a priority...


to see that it gets to the next link in the supply chain as quickly as possible...


a far cry from the days of sailing fishing boats - as depicted in this early John Miller oil at Lane's Auction house.
