Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 17 November 2017

#FishyFriday here in Newlyn


Last of the neap tide's MSC Certified Cornish hake on Newlyn market morning...


along with plenty of inshore trawl fish that not many hours ago was till languishing somewhere near the sea bed...


like these big squid form the Millennia...


sometimes turbot have the same skin markings top and undersides...


the Cornishman went for a trip targeting plaice and cuttles again...


along with some less than pretty Dover sole...


while Tom has been haddock bashing again...


the big beamer, Billy Rowney bashed away at a few megrim soles......


while the handliners went for fish that add sparkle to the market mornings like these nickel-plated pristine pollack...


and beautiful bass...


while some of the buyers went for the more beastly boggle-eyed bothicks or pout as everyone else knows them...


the Millennia always 'wings' his ray - something akin to 'finning' but without the negative connotations - the rest of the ray bodies go for crab bait...


at the other side of the remaining market space the netters piled on the boxes of hake like these big fish from the Padstow boat., Charisma...


and for some the chance to land spurdogs again - until recently all these fish would have been dumped (discarded) back over the side of the boat again to feed the crabs and sea lice...


sometimes the future is orange, not white...


it's time to tea-off, first round of the morning tea drinking competition...


and a gorgeous morning it is too...


as gulls wheel around looking for an easy breakfast snack...


over the inshore trawler, Millennia waiting to take ice.
