Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 10 July 2017

Monday morning market.


Superb mix of inshore day-boat trawl fish along with two beam trawlers and a netter with hake and turbot on board...


which means there were plenty of monk tails up for auction...


along with plenty of Dovers...


all auctioned under the auspices of head auctioneer Ian Oliver, seen here with his very own fishcam which relays the sale live to the office staff...


technology has come along way in the fishing industry and this is an exclusive for Through the Gaps as we get first sight of FalFish's buyer Edwin using the newly developed QR code reader for cuckoo ray...


a good shot of langoustine for the James RH...


four-score and ten gurnards...


enough to make you watch in wonder...


these huge pair of red bream have Chelsea written all over them...


some bass even come with their own tub of sweet-and-sour sauce...


smart move Sid...


especially with the hake too...


a pair of perfect monk tails...


from the Karen of Ladram...


a moody Monday morning Mount...


another huge scalloper from north of the border lands to a lorry - scallops fished in any quantity are always landed direct to a buyer at an agreed price rather than put on an open auction...


a tidy ship is...


scallops heading ashore...


from the Cordella K...


an indication of the size of the boat, drawing three metres at the bow...


its not every day you get one of the UK's leading fisheries consultants heaving on your net...


not much room for anymore scallop bags...


big boats need big nets...


you need a sense of humour at sea...


hammerlock links have all but replaced shackles on many rigging jobs.
