Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 4 July 2016

Monday morning's misty market in Newlyn


 The scalloping season is under way...


blackbacks love tp strut their stuff...


beam trawlers, prawn trawlers, inshore trawlers and netters today...


which means flats like plaice...


plenty of haddock...


some huge examples of food critic Jay Rayner's 'food hell', monk tails


plenty of white fish on the ground for the prawn trawler Bracoden...


signs of summer mean line caught fish from St Ives boats like the Bethshan...


and a few mackerel...


just the one good red mullet this morning...


as the scalloprs queue to take ice...


not much ghost fishing by this lost pot...


tons of turbot on the market this morning...


and not two...


or four...


but five types of ray from the one boat....


along with a good shot of hake, though fishing is slack right across the grounds according to the netter skippers...


so these boxes are the result of a steady week's work.
