Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 15 May 2017

Monday morning in Newlyn


If it was warmer it would be muggy, but it isn't, so this morning it is mainly overcast and misty...



which does not affect the spirits of those inside the fish market participating in Monday morning's market with a mix of boats landing including another invisible netter with a huge trip or turbot...



the beamers landed their usual haul of megrim soles...



some heads, some tails...



and the Algrie had a good shot of Dover soles including these monsters...



while the Spirited Lady III managed a few John Dory...



and the Scottish prawner, Orion hit the haddock...



top cooking tip this morning - Saturday's St Ives Food & Drink Festival saw Mitch Tonks cook up a dish using octopus - and he explained that the species of octopus normally caught in North Atlantic waters - which have a single row of suckers as can be seen in this photo - are not suitable as, despite the efforts of many chefs, all have failed to produce a tender fleshed dish - the kind needed are those with multiple rows of suckers down their tentacles apparently...



at nearly 11kg this turbot is big enough to feed a wedding party...



a ten foot version of this would panic the most hardened swimmer...



red fish in red boxes...



good to see Cod's boat, Butts on fish tallies again...



named and dated, ray wings from team Curtiss...



pristine turbot from the mystery netter...



auctioneer Ian in full flow...



easy pickings, a good selection of paws this morning...



one punt for sale - see Boats for Sale...



come on you blues, by far the most popular colour for the Scottish fleet...



as the Bracoden pulls on her trawl again after a long night of mending...



just made it in at high water...



the transport waits for the prawns to come ashore.
