Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 9 October 2017

Newlyn on a Monday morning in Seafood Week


More plant moved in to refurb the market building...


as the buyers move swiftly in to bid on the first sale of the morning...


on fish from boats like inshore trawler newby New Venture...


plenty of cuttles from the Resurgan and Cornishman...


along with a good selection of high quality flats...


like these brill...


while the inshore fleet trawled up a selection of rays...


John Dory...


the beam trawler selected out a good run of tub gurnard...


among continuing heavy landings of plaice...


more than enough to keep auctioneer Ian getting the best bids out of the buyers...


especially for top quality fish like this bass from the trawler, Millennia...


and a box of 'snakes' as small conger are referred to...


while this big shot of line caught bass...


caused Colin to wince as the price rose ever higher...


there were a few boxes of herring...


and a small number of squid...


alongside the re-sited grading machine...


just a few of Monday's monk haul...


now minus her port registration numbers on her bow the William Stevenson is nearly ready to make the passage to her new home in Bideford...


forklift action...


the Sapphire II's  derrick is now fully rigged and back in place...


deck lights blazing, the Cornishman is all set for sea again.
