Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 25 July 2016

Monday morning melee in Newlyn.


Beamers, netters, trawlers and inshore handliners for Monday morning's market...


with summer season fish like megrims...


red mullet...


even a few octopus 


which together with John Dory...


are some of Nathan Outlaw's favourite fish - recipes for both are in his latest book, Nathan Outlaw's Everyday Seafood...


or you could go for fish with big white flakey flesh like pollack...


or bass...


or top of the range MSC Certified Cornish hake...


all of which are keenly contested by the buyers - except for mackerel - mediums making only10p a kilo!!...


outside the market Dan and the boys after a long night at sea are landing 7 tons of Cornish sardines


while netters like the Karen of Ladram take a berth at the iceworks...


Tom brails sardines into the insulated tubs of slush ice...


as the exodus begins for the inshore fleet...


the last ton of ice is pumped aboard the Karen...


as other boats queue for ice...


like the Falmouth boat, Galatea...


the rest head for the gaps.
