Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 6 December 2017

Mid-week market in Newlyn


A grown up lifeboat and a teenager...


before the fish gets on the market it has to be landed, sometimes alongside if the tide is high enough to allow the bigger boats to come alongside like Don here with the Filadelfia,...


by stalwarts such as Roger...


handling a few boxes of black...


before they go on the market in the morning...


clearly a red and grey gurnard...


and 100s of kilos of grey mullet...


from the beach at Newquay...


the inshores have all had good fishing...


 as the tide jumps...


especially on ray...


and even a few un-seasonal John Dory came young Roger's way...


and plenty of haddock to contradict the ridiculous TAC set for the fish in ICES Area VII...


whisk'em away quick...


the inshores even managed to bag a few extra boxes of cuttles as they move west...


while the Elizabeth Veronique landed a big trip including these cracking tubs...


while the Imogen III made up for the lack of hake from the netters with a small contribution to the week's figures...


Tom was in amongst the ray - he starred in an excellent photo series Cornish & Tough shot recently by local photographer Ricky Davy...


buyers gathering for fish from the Don...


and his selection of quality flats like these lemons, plaice and megrims...


looks like it was a long, hard day for Cap'n Cod on the Butts...


the mighty megrim sole...


were just some of the fish that went to the highest bidder with the pale blue tallies...


as the others bide their time for their bids...


or give a thumbs-up on the proceedings...


as auctioneer Ian drives the prices ever upwards...


squid don't get much better looking than this - held in slush ice on the boat in insulated tubs...


plenty of line caught fish in the fridge...


including winter mackerel...


there's a new Tranquility in town this morning...


from a previous life registered in Fraserburgh...


Rowse's new crabber high out of the water with no ballast or main engine to put her down!
