Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 24 October 2016

Top quality inshore fish provide most of Monday morning's market in Newlyn.


Top quality inshore fish provide most of Monday morning's market in Newlyn today...


apart from a part trip of fish from the beam trawler Twilight III...


though she did put the biggest bass of the day on the market floor...


guess the fish?...


often-times the inshore boats working just the daylight hours catch just the odd fish of one species or another...


the best fish flies off the market...


skipper Plugger on the Shiralee always has had a nose for the squid...


while Mark must have been made up with this huge trip of flats, especially as most of them were the very best, and expensive, brill...


name this flatfish...


its the quality not the quantity of dayboat fish that counts...


like these cracking monk tails...


tubs of black gold, black gold? at an average of £1,775 per tub catching cuttlefish makes economic sense for the beam trawl fleet...


more big bass...


and pristine red mullet...


outside just as R4's weatherman is describing how heavy rain is about to hit the south west...


the rain comes down and the wind picks up keeping the hull of Rowse's new crabber Harriet Eve blown well off the quayside...


and lights in the harbour have plenty to reflect.
