Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 3 October 2016

Magnificent Monday morning in Newlyn.


Plenty of fish, plenty of variety as a mix of net, beam, trawl and line caught fish go to auction this morning...


on Newlyn market...


the money fish on the beam trawlers at this time of year, Dover sole and monk fish...


as the season for fishing in the deep water for megrims has all but passed...


there's always a few plaice on the grounds...


blonde or spotted ray?...


never minds reds under the bed, there's plenty in the box...


and  gray ones too...


some fish have very distinctive skin...


big bass treat for the buyers this morning from the handline specialists...


and it's good to see Gary back in action after his three week trip aboard the Cefas Endeavour on her annual Beam Trawl survey in the Irish Sea...


hake prices should put a smile on the faces of the net boats who landed this morning...


keeping an eye on the auction...


the Britannia V was one of the net boats to land...


her MSC Certified hake...


boot battles on the market...


not so much mackerel around with the weather being fickle...


the orange net team at rest...


Rowse's new crabber looks pristine...


while the boat she has superceeded shows just how hard these guys work...


the harbourmaster and deputy harbourmaster are both in action this morning...


the unmistakable silhouette of the harbour workboat and Ollie in action...


as the sun tries to break through...


the swan family are still asleep in the Old Harbour...



contrails and phone lines.
