Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 20 November 2017

Monday morning on Newlyn fish market


Not a breath in the harbour this morning...



as the inshore trawler, Shirlaee moves up to take ice...



most of this mornings fish landings were from small inshore or single-handed line boats like these line caught pollack...



best bass form Cod on the Butts...



with hardly a scale missing...



fish this fresh kept in small slush iced insulated tubs at sea looks stunning...



so boats like the Cynthia...



and the mackerel handline boats...



that filled the market fridge should get prices that reflect the superb quality this morning...



especially for the best big bass like this pair...



or the jig caught squid...



still covered in the thin brown membrane that is a dead giveaway as to their freshness and line-caught provenance...



Mark and the boys went Dory bashing for a few hauls over the weekend...



while haddocks yet again made up a good part of the inshore trawler landings...



that included fish from Tom...



the Millennia...



and Nigel's Innisfallen...



while the Algrie suffered a broken trip and landed enough flats like these lemons to keep the trade happy



visiting registered freezer trawler, Saint Rosa landed a small catch this morning that included these superb small-eyed ray...



and 'Rosa' mullet...



the Breizh Arvor II landed a similar haul of these beautiful fish...



along with whole monk - Cornish boats are virtually the only boats to tail monkfish...



and a handful of eight-leggers...



in the thick of the ray again, the inshore trawler, Millennia...



and Nigel on the Innisfallen pulled this monster from the deep...



even Tom on the Harvest Reaper could not resist the temptation to wrestle a good landing of ray...



and a few JDs...



while the only hake on the market was from Sid on the Karen of Ladram...



two big windfarm cats spent a night in the port after steaming down from Barrow-in-Furness...



while the Saint Rosa - sporting two sets of trawl doors on her stern gantry...



she was previously the French trawler, Princess Laurie from Cherbourg...



now owned by Irish company Millbay Fishing Ltd from Louth in Waterford...



stopped in Newlyn to land cuttlefish last night after fishing south of Brixham for the last week...


along with the Breizh Arvor II who also landed a few boxes on the market in Newlyn before heading for Ireland- the speed tracking graph on the VesselTracker cockpit page provides and insight into the frequency of hauling, shooting and towing the trawl over the course of a trip.
