#FishyFriday in Newlyn




With the weather moderating, extricating the crabber Intuition from the quay requires patience first thing in the morning...


two of the biggest bean trawlers side-by-side in Newlyn...


while on the market most of the fish and cuttles came from the Cornishman...


and  Sapphire II...


while the netter Charisma landed a good shot of hake...


and other whitefish l;ike these whiting...


haddock...


and ling...


there were just a handful of bass up for auction...


a few dozen scallops with their amazing 200 eyes...


restaurateurs' favourites, brill..


the powerful 'claspers' found on male ray...


tubby gurnards...


and a box of scampi tails...


the odd JD...


and a few huge monk tails...


gave up a good selection of cheeks...


and the odd turbot...


along with a handful of red mullet...


lemons, Dovers and megrim soles...


came for the Cornishman and the Sapphire II...


and the odd plaice...


who donated to this morning's Newlyn Christmas lights fish auction...


while these stunning squid...


from the man himself aboard the Butts...


plans for the market...


are on display for all to see.
