Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 10 April 2015

It's another good #FishyFriday


Fish galore on the first #FishyFriday after Easter...


including some less well-known flatfish...


both different kinds of soles...


unlike fish on the market, scallops are sold by the dozen...


just a handful of cuttlefish for the inshore trawlers...


and a couple of grey gurnard are contrasted with the more abundant reds...


plenty of hake...


 from the big netter Joy of Ladram...


and a huge female ray...


big blondes are every bit as meaty as a thick steak...


standing astride the jaws of the biggest Gadoid on the morning's market...


never ceases to amaze just what ends up being trawled up form the deeps, a barnacle-encrusted wheelie bin being most unlikely...


hopefully the historic Excellent has been snapped up for the princely sum of £1 which is all the owner was asking for...


waiting for the next trip, the netter Joy of Ladram...


and a brace of Nowell beam trawlers...


astern of the Scilly-bound supply boat Arromanches...


looking at another of Stevenson's big beam trawlers across the harbour on the slip...


yet more aluminium welded together on the port's latest sardine boat...


while three of the biggest sardine boats are now in the quiet season waiting for the summer fish to show...



a gig not to be missed at the Swordy tonight, the the usual Suspects!
