Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 9 September 2016

#FishyFriday in Newlyn.


Two beam trawlers, inshore trawlers and the hake netter, Brittania V landed to this morning's market...


with a big late season landing of John Dory...


 for young Roger Nowell on the Imogen II...


spot...


the spots...


a grandaddy squid, still no sign of any quantity yet...


the very best in Cornish hake on the market this morning...


and a few good sized haddock too...


there's plenty of mackerel around the coast...


door mats, slips and tongues, just some of the names for the different sizes of soles...


scalloping suits the older ex-beam trawlers...


rockhopper trawl close-up, with additional chain wound round the footrope to help weigh it down, the first dozen rows are of heavier, wear-resistant braided twine (several rows of meshes are pulled together in the join or selvedge) and the line of blue twine indicates where two separate panels are joined... 


ALB shouts are already on a par with the figures for 2012 & 2013, let's hope they don't match the last two years...


just some members of the resident swan family out on the water this morning.
