Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 15 August 2016

Monday morning's massive market in Newlyn.


Just the one landing of beam trawl fish this Monday morning, so plenty of the very best quality foish from the inshore boats plus some huge landings form the netters, Ajax, Govenek of Ladram and the Karen of Ladram with some of their fosh landed to Brixham at the same time...


typical of the inshore landings, best big monk tails from the Helford's, New Harnmony...


with their approach to responsible and sustainable fishing the netting fleet land seriously big fish, like these cod from the Ajax...


with summer here the inshore boats get to grips with pelagic fish like mackerel...


and scad...


while the Goveneuk of Ladram put ashore the biggest trip of rays seen in over 40 years on Newlyn market, the huge haul included stars...


18 boxes of owls...


and nearly 100 boxes of blondes and thornbacks...


even a scalloper got to land first thing...


and of course there were hake from the Ajax...


for the buyers to ponder...


all 300+ boxes of them, with half going to Brixham to spread the market...


line caught pollack form Padstow...


and net caught from Newlyn!
