Final #FishyFriday before the referendum!


Eleven of the finest vessels in the fleet make it a...


feast of #FishyFriday fish on the market this morning...


the all but toothless mouth that is a John Dory...


in contrast to the toothy grin of the monk...


and the mean smile of the hake...


with the prawn boats making their contribution...


and keeping the buyers busy...


and providing some entertainment for a group of visiting chefs-to-be...


getting a first-hand look at the raw product for their finest dishes...


another bid in the book...


name those fish...


is always a challenge if all you have seen is fillets and fish fingers...


some come bearing the name of the boat that caught them like these MSC Certified hake from the Ajax


or these top quality morkis...


and turbot...


one of the Atlantic's great predators...


top and bottom sides of this most luxurious flatfish...


cap'n Don landed a few of these red beauties...


the local gulls never miss a chance to thieve...


wash down time...


lagoon-like under the fish market this morning...


as the Sea-Spray heads back to sea...



past the moored trawlers...


and the visiting Welsh scalloper Aquinis...


making a statement of intent.
