Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 6 April 2016

Wednesday's busy market.


Only grade A quality tallies needed on Newlyn to go with the five EU sizes used for all commercially landed fish...



inshore and beam trawlers today, and of course the net boats which for some reason never get put on the sales board... #tradition...


some don't...


and some do have spots...



but not many weigh over 4kg!...


plenty of haddock moving over the grounds, even inshore...


good fshing on flats for the Imogen III...


though uyoung Roger won't be best pleaaed the beamer has bagged these Dorys...


everyhwre the boats fish there are haddock #thingsaintwhattheyusedtobe...


with summer on the way the megrim catches will rise for the beam trawlers...


blood red, the colour if fresh fish gills...


buying power on Newlyn...



plenty of big cod being caught...


and a few eight-leggers on the grounds...


what the net boats bring back to port...


along with these cracking turbot...


and hake from the Karen of Ladram...


enough to keep the buyers busy...


and auctioneer Ian in full flow...


Mr & Mrs blackback...


another black back, well stern to be precise...


clear decks on the St Georges...


keeping our seas clean...


wood work in progress


using centuries old techniques, like making a former from thin wood to get the precise shape for those long planks that have to be bent around the frames...


will bring the Galilee back to life...


the port's two biggest crabbers...


looking unsettled today...


behind closed doors in Badcock's Block.
