Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 21 October 2016

#FishyFriday and it's almost a frosty one, well, not really this is Cornwall.


Inshore trawlers and beamers this morning on the market in Newlyn...



including regular fish like megrim soles...



yellow spotted plaice...



a sprinkling of squid...



and cuttles...



the odd line caught pollack...



and plenty of good mackerel...



rays are endowed with a pair of claspers only used during reproduction, hidden beneath the folds of skin are a row of razor sharp hooks...



this old lady has been in the wars...



best bass on the market this morning...



and a handful of haddock of which there are ever -increasing amounts being caught...



plenty of fish to choose from for the weekend...



an an all-time favourite, mini monk tails...



a local shop window reflects the diversity of the port...



while across the bay, Michael's Mount looms over the misty sea off Marazion.
