#FishyFriday in Newlyn


Newlyn is a popular destination for news or current affairs programmes...



so while the atmosphere might be smokey outside the market...


inside Lionel and a team from CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Company) based in London are busy shooting...


for their latest coverage of the fishing industry and Brexit transition arrangements with a mix of video...


and stills images...


and on this final #FishyFriday of the month (there is no market next Good Friday) there is a wide range of fish on offer like these big plaice...


and even a Mediterranean octopus...


identified by the rows of double suckers...



captured on camera...


along with another good shot of hake...



 from Sid's Karen of Ladram...


and a handful of good whiting...



and the odd coley...


while sand soles (not Dover) seemed to be popular...


there's always a ray with a big smile on its face...


and the odd merchant or two...


looks like Spring might be just around the corner...


as the sun picks out three orange sardine boats from the Ocean Fish fleet...



and the Pelagic Marksman at rest...


another of the port's inshore trawler fleet, New Venture...


won't be long before the scaffolding comes down - April 8th rumour has it!
