Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Thursday, 1 June 2017

Thursday's fish market in Newlyn.


Not a netter insight! as six inshore trawlers and two f the port's biggest beam trawlers vie for the best prices...


on the fish market at Newlyn where Cefas Sam is busy collecting a sample of otoliths from the morning's landings...


young Roger has swung in to full John Dory mode and this last trip saw a dozen boxes of the beauties put ashore...


their appetite matching that of the Imogen's skipper...


who also landed a few boxes of good sized haddock... 


and megrim soles...


while there were the few odd boxes of line caught pollack from a handful of punt landings...


the buyers were keen to meet the demand for top quality fish during this first big tourist week of the season...


with no netters due until tomorrow these were pretty much the only hake on the market...


name the fish with these tails...


getting up close, always a top tip for aspiring photographers...


especially when your subject matter almost fills the box, Tom did manage to wrassle a few JDs away from the clutches of the Dory king...


just look at that sidestep, a move British Lions' local boy Jack Nowell would be proud of...



he was peeping in the 80s and he was peeping in the 90s...


and this year's John Dory chasing award goes to...


anything to do with fishing means it has to be bigger, stronger and more durable than might otherwise be the case, and that even includes the construction of a simple item like the freshwater hose carrier...


keeping the seabed tidy...


after a hard season working away from Newlyn the Chris Tacha is back for a spruce-up...


inshore boats have crowded decks at the best of times and even ore so when they have new gear to put out...


as in the case of the Mordros.
