Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 17 February 2016

Wetter than wet Wednesday.


Looks like a good bit of monk moving inshore...


ID this tail...


Cefas collecting the latest landing data from the inshore trawlers who landed today...


there might be fairies at the bottom of some gardens but there are more witches on the market in Newlyn...


and plaice...


Nigel's eyes must have popped wide open when this beauty flopped out of the cod end and flipped its tail up on the deck...


the almost prehistoric look of ray tails...


another pair of congruous conger...


pretty in pink, red mullet always good to see...


some of the hake boats filled the western end of the market...


keeping the porters busy...


moving several hundred boxes of hake...


and blackjacks...


and pollack...


from the likes of the Karen of Ladram...


with the 2-3 grade hake making good money...


for the Britannia V...


they get taken from the market quick enough...


roses from pollack, cod and ling...


not quite a gummy bear, the teeth on this fish are more like those to be found on a rasp - raspers rather than teeth...


"I'll have some of those"...


some just can't stand the pace...


cracking example of a bream, but which one?...


another boat name, this time with religious connotations.
