Monday morning's market in Newlyn



Two beam trawlers, inshore trawlers and two big netters, one with a mixed trip of hake and monk, the other mainly hake make up this morning's market in Newlyn...



the boss man himself, Matthew Stevens gives Rick Stein's apprentices, the cheffing stars of tomorrow the benefit of his many years experience buying fish on Newlyn market...



with class fish like these John Dory from young Roger Nowell...



and handful of conger from the WSS...



and a box of which fish?...



or even which boat...



just the one, solitary gleaming red mullet...



and some seriously big monk tails for the netter, Karen of Ladram...



and some equally big Dover soles from one of the beamers...



after a 4am start, Lee Hall from @Truro-Penwith and the Rick Stein apprentices completes their tour of the fish market before moving out to the quays...



but not before they have seen some of the ports fish on offer like these star rays...



and a box of good sized monk fish cheeks...



and a rare visitor, a stone bass - this one was caught by the Karen of Ladram and it just so happens that one of skipper Sid's sons is also a chef - currently working at, you guessed it Rick Steins! - here is a recipe from Jamie in a previous life for stone bass...



a mouth-watering a dinner-plate-sized turbot...



skipper Sid's boat heads up the fleet tied up in port for the night...



having just steamed back to the port for 10 hours...




 it looks the Britannia V boys need a little kick-start this morning...



always guaranteed to put a smile on your face, landlady Debbie's thoughts for the day from the Star Inn opposite the fish market...



steaming for home, the port's only offshore trawler, Crystal Sea makes for the gaps.
