Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 12 October 2015

Margaret makes a habit of a Monday morning.


Three beam trawlers...


including the latest to join the fleet, the Margaret of Ladram landed fish over the weekend...


and the Twilight which, for a beam trawler, put ashore a big shot of John Dory, a fish not normally caught in such quantities by a boat using a trawl that only has the headrope a few feet from the sea bed...


long ling...


and there are plenty of bass to be had this morning...


as well as a good run of gurnards...


and even a big tub...


gilt nose bream...


over two hundred boxes of hake from the netters like the Ajax...


a smattering of mackerel from the handliners...


the odd red fish...


and a p;air of bull huss...


along with some late morning landings of sardines...


ready to be shipped away instantly...


the Margaret at rest.
