Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 3 July 2015

It's not just the first Friday of the month it's also #FishyFriday !


Three beam trawlers, one netter and four inshore trawlers along with a hundred boxes of fish from punts all round the Penwith coast line from coves like Penberth and Sennen make up today's landings...



here the buyers get busy on fish from the beamer Resurgam...



don't mess with a thorn back ray...



some, but not many mackerel make up the market fayre this morning...



while the buyers keep a close eye on some quality hake from the netter Govenek of Ladram...



there's not so much haddock on the inshore grounds at the moment...



can ray fly?...



shark are full of tricks, like balancing a blackboard on their olfactory organs - btw, no animals were hurt in the making of this picture...



but, as turbot are often referred to by fishermen...



hopefully, a Chain of Custody for Cornish hake will be in place for a significant amount of the fish sold off the market in Newlyn...




with the weather warming and the BBQs being fired up let's hop more of these spectacular fish will find there way to the market floor.
