May the 19th #FishyFriday


Just the one Scottish prawner in port last night...


and her whitefish (the prawns go by lorry back to Scotland for processing) went on the market this morning along with six other inshore trawlers' fish and another mystery netter...


cracking line caught fish form the pollack king, Dave Smith on the Sea Spray...


while Brackan popped a good shot of lemons ashore...


while Tom on the Harvest Reaper bashed a few of young Mr Nowell's JDs on the head...


all of which kept the buyers busy bidding...


two shades of Dover sole...


name this fish...


when it comes to red fish these red mullet take some beating...


though a tub gurnard, buried in sea salt and baked whole are truly delicious - give them 30-40 minutes in a hot oven......


a pair of bug brill, much beloved of British Airways transatlantic flights at one time...


best butt on the market...


rare and very expensive this morning- the not so humble mackerel...


you've been framed...


true to the man's word, the occasional shower forecast duly arrived at 7am...


not before a superb shot of MSC Certified hake sold quickly on the market from this morning's mystery netter, the Govenek of Ladram...


who also provided a few cracking big red mullet...


and this huge 5kg plaice!..


ahead of the inshore netter, Sovereign Ocean Fish's scalloper Men Dhu has just arrived to unload her catch...


life on the edge...


there are net drums...


and net drums...


the port's newest sardine boat's is all but rigged ready for sea...


while the Radiance is half way through her paint job.
