Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 30 January 2017

Monday morning with two full trips of fish on the auction floor.


One of the port's biggest beam trawlers landed a good mix of fish for this morning's market...


including these huge megrims soles..


huge monk...


along with these much smaller monk known as scampi tails - as they were often used to create 'scampi' when cut into bite-sized portions and deep fried coated in breadcrumbs - back in the 70s, the Newlyn Meadery was associated with such a practice, maybe just an urban myth!...


Cefas vs Moushole Fish; time to catch up on a little weekend football gossip...


the lateral line of which fish?...


got to love those lemons form the St Georges...


the netter, Ajax's fish spilled over on to the main auction hall...


more distinct lateral lines but from which fish...


head to tail, just like dancing the conger...


just two grades of hake form the Ajax's big trip...


more distinct lateral lines, but this time white ones, but which fish?...


all hail the mighty hake...


drizzly, very drizzly, mizzly Monday morning...


but there is no end in sight of the mackerel filling the boots of the handliners working in St Ives bay...


and the odd bass or two...


young and old John Dory...


scallops by the bag.
