Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 13 March 2017

Monday morning in Newlyn


Maybe Lionel ran out of chalk this morning but in addition to the beam trawlers James RH Stevenson and the Algrie...



there was also fish from the biggest Stevenson beamer in the fleet, the Cornishman along with the Aaltje Adriaantje, Twilight III and the Sapphire II, and not forgetting the gill netters, Govenek of Ladram, Briatnnia V and the Padstow netter, Charisma...



with so much fish Gary from Cefas was generous to a fault in giving BBC3 researchers Poppy and Olivia a lesson on fisheries research and showing them how to collect an otolith sample from a Dover sole...



and on such a busy market they were able to fully appreciate the unique diversity of fish that Newlyn supplies to the market including fish like thornback ray with all its unpleasant superficial features...



as well as staple fish like cod from the inshore netter, Three Jays...



a team effort from two of the netters...



with plenty of hake from them...



and the Govenek of Ladram...



and a real treat, an hours old tub gurnard displaying its electric blue pectoral fins. A great start to the Newlyn week!
