Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Saturday, 2 April 2016

There's a party going on south west of Lundy!


You can tell it is April month by the number of UK, Breton, French and Belgian fishing boats 'up channel' - in the Bristol Channel.  At this time of year fish like cod, whiting, plaice, lemons and Dover soles are more abundant off the north Cornish coast.  All the Belgian and UK boats are beam trawlers - all the French and Breton boats are stern trawlers.  The guys on the ISS might even be able to see them all at night when they have their deck lights switched on!
