Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 29 January 2018

Fish galore! - Monday morning's massive market.


Just some of the 3.5 tons of MSC Certified hake...


 landed by the netter Britannia V...


all set for restaurants and a growing number of fish and chip shops around the UK...


unusually, two of the netters touched on a handful of big bass too...


with so much fish the market had to make use of every available space...


even then some fish were stacked eight boxes high...


not so these beautiful ray from the Imogen II...


name this little black beauty...


there's plaice with spots and there's plaice with red spots...


pollack keeping an eye on things...


haddock is all over the ground again this year...


along with some cracking big tun gurnards...


all getting the Cefas data collection tables growing...


up for auction...


there's always one or two big JDs in a trawler's trip at this time of year - young Roger will be looking for these guys in quantity as the summer arrives...


but now is the time for big whitefish hauls as the spawning season approaches...


smaller ray get winged to save fishroom, the body carcass' often going for bait...


making a dash for the prime auction...


this morning's market was one of the busiest markets for the year so far...


with a couple of big trips from the netters including the Stelissa...


the ropes go ashore as the AA arrives to land...


Rowse crabber, Chris Tacha back in port...


she's almost against the quay now.
