Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Tiz a black #FishyFriday!



This time of year it is Black Friday every Friday...



in Newlyn as black cuttlefish ink pervades everywhere...


especially on full markets like today's...



it is just as well we have a fleet of netters specialising in catching hake - the box above...



 and this is the sum total of hake landed by two beam trawlers after six days at sea between them...



there's still a smattering of John Dory on the grounds...



while the netter Govenek of Ladram pit ashore a trip of big white fish like these pollack...



and hake...



with on of the inshore boats picking up a nice little haul of bass...



there were a few boxes of mullet as well...



time off between tides for the netters Karen of Ladram and the Govenek of Ladram...



while the beam trawler Cornishman takes on fuel for her next trip...



there's that Spring tide full moon hanging over the harbour...



and a heavy sky looking south east of the Bay.
