Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 21 November 2016

Monday morning


Big seas over the weekend brought even some of the bigger boats back to port for Monday's market...


with around 600 boxes from beam trawlers and some inshore boats that braved the heavy seas on Sunday...


more than enough to keep Cefas data collection on track...


some big seasonal bass...


cracking gurnards...


the odd John dory...


and even more sinister fish on the market floor...


with plenty of mackerel for those in the right place at the right time...


the megrims...


came stacked four high for the Sapphire II...


there's two sides to every flatfish...





bass...


mackerel...


herring...


and mullet were all targeted by the inshore boats over the weekend...


with a handful of the bigger sizes...


the fish came from far and wide...


at this time of year it's hard not to target Brixham squid......


the rain was incessant overnight...


making the job of repairing gear all the more uncomfortable.
