Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 9 November 2016

The acid test, when the USA went from blue to red.


Ther market reflected the news coming out of the USA across the pond...


in the early hours of this morning as the UK woke up to the news that Trump is the president elect...


something everyone will remember about today no doubt...


when the was the finest monk on the market...


along with pollack...


and haddock...


Dover sole...


and liner caught bass from the Storm Petrel...


name these fish...


big blondes...


and pollack...


the odd ling, which used to be landed in huge quantities when there was a fleet of longliners working from Newlyn...


gone to the dogs...


plenty of hake from the Karen of Ladram...


and a good run of ray...


are swiftly taken away from the market...


on a morning of deeply foreboding skies...


good news for the boats landing to the market, one of the new cranes has been fitted.
