Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 16 March 2015

It's Newlyn's first #CatchofTheDay


There's light in the sky at 6am these mornings...



as inshore boats like the Nazarene ready themselves for a day on the pots...



over 1000 boxes on the market this morning...



with just the one box of roes - it's a shame these hugely tasty treats don't make more money at this time of year...



Andy regales the Cornwall College chefs-to-be students with his favourite 'one that got away' yarn...



with hake prices at a low, some of the net boats like the Ajax have decoded to preserve what hake quota they have for  when the price makes it worth catching them in any quantity...







one mermaid's purse amongst the gurnards - but what fish produces it?...



two of the most common kinds of ray landed on the market...



on the move, the next auction has started...



just a few herring still coming ashore...



seems nobody on the Shiralee likes scallops - with such a small quantity these would never make it past the frypan on many boats!...



full of fish from end-to-end...



keep the buyers busy...



the big Belgian beam trawler Francine enjoyed a night ashore...



these days many of the smaller boats that work static gear like nets and pots are fitted with bow thrusters to keep the boat 'on the gear' when hauling...



Rowse's crabber Chris Tacha being one pof them...



looking ahead and bound...



out through the gaps...



looking for more @nowellsy15 tries next weekend...



seems the tide is out this morning in the old harbour...



all that's missing is the #CatchOfTheDay in Trelawney's wet fish shop in Newlyn...



plenty of yellow and pink to be seen in and around the town.
