Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 9 January 2017

First Monday fish auction for 2017


Three beam trawlers, one inshore, two netters and a dozen handliners landed fish for the first Monday market of the year...


including a huge trip of monk from the New Harmony...


huge box sized brill...


buyers go head-to-head...


a dozen boxes of witches - a big landing of these cousins to the megrim...


and a big landing of ling, once landed by the ton when Newlyn had a fleet of 50-60' longliners, back in the day...


some ray missed out on the spots...


good little dollop or red mullet for the beamer...


the At Ives mackerel boats enjoyed a bumper weekend with prices holding up making them happy men...


MSC Cornish hake courtesy of the Charisma...


with some real crackers...


and, unusually for Newlyn and these warmer waters, a small halibut...


more MSC Certified hake...


heavy clouds roll in from the west heralding what looks likely to be a rather inclement day...


not that will bother the ever-watchful Tom...
