Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 26 January 2015

It's a mizzly Monday morning but the sun has promised to put in an appearance by 8 o'clock!


A couple of full beam trawler trips gave the market a boost this morning with some roime examples of west country fish on offer...



like these delectable Dover sole from the Trevessa IV...



and magnifique megrim solefrom the Sapphire II...



some fish are the stuff of nightmares at the wrong angle - but conger eels make for great fish cakes with their fibery flesh...



there were boxes of bass to be had...



and a limited number of quality red gurnard just waiting to be bought...



the last thing small fry would see before being devoured by a decent sized cod...



looking more like seals than ling...



evidence that cuttles are marching across the grounds in slightly less numbers than before Christmas as the number of tubs from each boat lessens each week...



outside the harbour on the edge of the Bay, Tom is being lashed by mizzly rain and windy westerly weather!
