#FishyFriday has arrived in Newlyn!


Dover soles...



lemon soles...



the cheerful face of the turbot...



a few dozen scallops...



redder than red tub gurnards...



bidding in the fridge on the line caught mackerel...



early signs of a few cuttles with a couple of tubs landed from the Twilight III...



the netter Joy of Ladram landed the last of the MSC Certified Cornish hake for this neap tide and can now enjoy a few days rest...



while the buyers bid on the catch...



which included a solitary John Dory...



and a few big red tubs...


the dawning of the day is beginning to take on a more autumnal air of late...



with the Crystal Sea looking very tidy after her annual refit up at Toms of Polruan all set to get away as soon as possible. Hopefully, future infrastructure investment in in Newlyn will see many of the fleet undergo refits in the port without having to steam a 100 mile round trip away from home.
