Freezing #FishyFriday? - not in Newlyn!


Friday's market full of fresh fish...


with Cefas Sam busy collecting otoliths from a good landing of big turbot...


all safely recorded and stored...


good to see ray back on the market floor and not being dumped like at the end of the year - this is one of those fish that will be a choke species come the implementation of the discards rule...


even murgies are making good money as crab bait...


all sorted...


stack them high when there are plenty...


name the fish...


some fish even appear to have feet...


these bream are a great alternative to bass when baked in a huge pile of sea salt...


scallops by the dozen...


not so much black gold this morning...


but plenty of hake with the gill netters...


including this monster in double figures...


all the lights are on with nowhere to go because of the weather.
