Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 12 January 2018

#FishyFriday in Newlyn full of fish


Always good to see the Ivan Ellen in her berth...


hake form the netters is back on the auction floor...


close-up of a hake's breathing apparatus...


the beamer, Twilight III picked up a few big flats like these turbot...


and brill...


along with a few rays...


and a good shot of late-season cuttles...


making their impact felt on the market floor...


with rivers of sepia ink carefully negotiated by young Colin who had only just cleaned his boots not expecting any more black gold to be landed in any quantity on the market again until the winter...


auctioneer Ian works his way through the big white fish from the netters...


which included this huge 8+ kilo hake...


there were also a few line caught bass on the market...


and the odd mixed box of inshore fish...


and a good shot of inshore trawl fish form the Imogen III...


which included this happy conger...


mackerel...


red mullet...

lemon sole...


monk...


haddock...


and Dover sole where all up for auction...


as the buyers worked their way around the market floor...


the fish are taken off as soon as they are sold...


just some of the boats that went through the grading machine this morning...


big white fish...


and more popular pouts...


but none beat bass for price per kilo...


the fridge was full of St Ives Bay hand line mackerel again...


those spots are a giveaway for flatfish...


there's two sides to every story, and flat fish too...



cuttles even leave their mark outside the market - but at £4.50 a kilo nobody is complaining!
