Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Last November #FishyFriday in Newlyn


The only big boat to put fish ashore for this #FishyFriday was the beam trawler, Billy Rowney...


so competition from the assembeled buyers was keen...


even for fish like the humble whiting...


big-eyed ling...


lovely lemons...


a handful of mini-Dory...


and some fresh crab bait...


along with the ubiquitous megrim sole...


marvellous monk tails...


the wonderful cousin to the megrim, the witch...


a box of big thornyback ray...


and some slippery Dovers...


and a few boxes of perpetually glum cod...


handliners enjoyed a day on some very small mackerel..


and a handful of herring...


all sold before 7am...


along with these belting bass...


pollack...


and a handful of bigger mackerel...


snapped up smartly by a man who loves his fish...


meanwhile, down the quay the St Georges makes gear ready for sea...


though it looks like there is still plenty of work to finish down below deck...


this year Penzance town is being all lit up for the Christmas season it seems.
