Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 14 September 2015

Newlyn's Monday morning market sees sky-high prices!


For the few inshore boats...



like the New Harmony...


able to get away over the weekend in some very inclement weather...


to land fish like these magnificent monk...


and turbot it's good news as fish prices soar with so little being landed around the UK this morning...


even relatively cheap fish like this plaice make good money on a market with only a handful of boats landing...


so Doversole...


and these turbot  will make the numbers bigger on the boat's settling sheet...


the MSC hake from the Karen of Ladram...


and even these sardines...


will keep the discerning Newlyn buyers busy on their phones checking prices elsewhere...


with the MSC's George Clark...


accompanying Dutch TV chef Bart van Olphen working on a new cook book showcasing sustainable fish recipes from around the world...


the guys will be keeping their fingers crossed...


that the heavy storm clouds will blow over by tonight when they are due to sail on one of the port's Cornish sardine boats...


unable to bring the boat round into the wind when fishing only half a mile off the shore early this morning, stalwart handline fisherman Chris Morley has decided to put the boat on the hard and fish out some weed and line from his prop instead! There's always a job to be found on a boat it seems.
