Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 1 November 2017

Plenty of fish and another gorgeous morning in Newlyn


An eerie ETish glow surrounds the FalFish trailer this morning...


and the market is once again chokka with fish...


this time the Filadelfia picked up plenty of


 megrim and Dover sole...


along with a solitary gleaming bream...


and hardly any plaice this trip...


back at the bass, Cod had a good but not great day on this most elusive of fish...


while young Mr Pascoe took his place at the top pf the table for the day with the best shot of the day...


while the inshore trawler, Still Waters managed yet another solid little trip on the rays...


along with the odd red mullet...


and the Millennium tipped up with a haul of glistening haddock...


and a few dozen Dory...


with half the market out of bounds there's not much room to move...


for big fish like these monster 8+ kilo hake...


and a few giant JDs...


more than enough to keep the buyers busy...


especially for a huge trip of hake from Sid on the Karen of Ladram...


who had to stack all his fish at least three boxes high...


the two most common types of cephalopod landed in Newlyn are from l-r, the cuttlefish, Sepiaofficinalis and the squid, Loligo forbesi...


though it is the cuttles that seem to cover everything in their vicinity in black sepia ink!..


while in the opposite direction yet another stunning sunrise greets all those lucky enough to work in the harbour at this time of day...


with just enough time to grab a few pics before bidding on the next lot of fish...


to land the night's work



or bring the boat round to the market... ......


as the Govenek of Ladram makes her way into a berth on the Mary Williams pier...


go this way, not that.
