Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 27 February 2017

Make the most of Monday morning!


Poor weather and big tides saw most of the fleet land at the end of last week...



so it was down to two of the biggest boats in the fleet to put fish on the market this morning, along with the James RH...



a big trip of megrim soles from the Cornishman...



and a good run of ray thrown in...



while the James scooped up a few bass in one haul...



along with plenty of cuttles...



netters Joy and Govenek of Ladram landed trips of monk...



ray...



steady as she goes...


turbot...




a few top drawer fish...



and hake of course...



the cuttles left their mark on the market floor...



and doorway...



name this fish...



surprise, surprise, plenty of mackerel with the handline fleet working in the lee of the wind over in St Ives Bay...



while the buyers bought what they could this morning knowing that there won't be much fish on the market for the next few days with the forecast being so poor...



big white fish aplenty...



for auctioneer, Ian with that wry smile appearing on his face at times...



outside the lengthening days mean that it is light by 7am...



heralding yet another day on the quay for Tom re-setting the trawl for the Harvest Reaper...



even the Crystal Sea took a few hours extra fooff in the poor weather...



along with the big Dutch beam trawler, Martje...



time for a fuel top-up for the beamers...



yet another netter looking to diversify, maybe...



not to be outdone, the local hand;ine fleet are out in force this morning with good mackerel marks just outside the harbour...



well in sight of the two big cargo ships at anchor still waiting for orders...



the local harbour seal is doing his own fishing just off the beach...



while onshore winds have washed up some Spanish longline gear on the beach - given that the Spanish boats use these nets well over 100 miles from the coast it is a sign of just how far flotsam and jetsam can travel in prevailing winds...



which have been well in excess of the speed limit over the weekend.
