Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 22 September 2017

Full-on #FishyFriday in Newlyn


Good to see the net boats included on the arrivals board...


with the market continuing to see huge landings of plaice...


and cuttles from beam trawlers...


like the Twilight III...


and Filadelfia...


when there were over forty 450Kg tubs of cuttles put ashore...


while the netter Joy of Ladram stuck to more conventional landings with haddock...


and hake...


going down in auctioneer Ian's little black book...


along with these cracking red gurnards...


and big flats from the beamers


seems to be something missing here...


two shades of blonde...


it's the CFG of hake...


only inshore day boats working handy inmshore land fish of this quality, like these gorgeous red mullet...


and near perfect red gurnards - something most fish cooks have ever had the pleasure of putting under a grill or stuffing and baking as they lose the depth of colour seen here within 12 hours of being caught...


the amazing mackerel...


and a few more reds...


the downside of landing Brixham squid, the cleaning up job afterwards...


stunning morning once again...


as the transport...


takes on board the night's sardine catch..


or the beamers take on fuel...


or head for the ice works...


overnight stay for another lifeboat...


classic sails in the sunrise...


as mother leads in her brood.
