Cod? Don't mind if I do sir!


No sign of even a drop of rain overnight in Newlyn...



not like the flooding in Coverack just a few miles away on the Lizard!...


three beamers in addition to inshore fish on Wednesday's mid-week market this morning...


with a trio of New Harmony haddock


a brace of John Dory...


a trio of specimen whiting...


Dovers galore from the Cornishman...


while our Cornish cod congratulates our cod cousins up North on being awarded MSC status, after all it is only a mere five years ago that the Sunday Times and other MSM ran a scaremongering story when stocks were already on the road to recovery story about there only being 100 adult cod in the North Sea - the MSC Certification is a great credit to all those fishermen who worked tirelessly and often at great personal cost to achieve the accredited status...


the Filadelfia  even managed to bag a few boxes of langoustine...


lovin' his work, Spike gets down 'n dirty on his bended knees recording yet another trip of whitefish...


which included these three greater weavers...


the sum total of hake caught after five days at sea - why netting is a more productive option and better quality too...


top drawer place from the inshore trawler Elisabeth Veronique landing fish barely 12 hours old...


though squid are still very patchy...


off with the old trawl doors...


mostly beam trawlers in after landing...


though out at sea a jack-up rig and its attendant tugs are sheltering from the fresh easterly breezes...


the new Scillys supply vessel, Mali Rose has been out on sea trials this week...


allowing the Sand Snipe to enter the DryDock.
