Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 28 March 2018

Mid-week fish market in Nelwyn - first Scottish prawns for the season!


See you Jimmy! the first of this season's...


 Scottish prawn trawlers...


 the Asteria...


 landed this morning...


while the visiting crabber loaded up with more bait from the fridge...


Wednesday's market was boosted by the presence of three beam trawlers...


a handful of mackerel boats...


and all the whitefish from the Asteria like pollack...


megrim sole...


some huge cuttlefish...


haddock...


and a run of big cod...


while the beamers landed their usual selection of Dover sole...


plaice...


you wouldn't know it was a fish would you?..


twin bream...


and a sign of settled weather and summer, several dozen boxes of scallops with the Cornishman...


while the AA landed a good run of monk tails...


the Twilight III managed a few red mullet...


to accompany these cracking tub gurnards from the AA...


and a big shot of ray...


and a few big flats like these turbot...


along with the beam trawlers the netters Govenek of Ladram...


landed hake and a few tangle net caught flats...


a brace of scad...


name the fish...


and this bearded happy chappy...


along with a good shot of pollack...


and roes to boot...


things moved at a pace this morning...



with the clock going forward at the weekend morning light is delayed by an hour from the previous week...


so the lights remain on...


as the Silver Dawn arrives back from France after landing her hake in Douarnenez...


the Mair, a regular Newlyn visitor...


the Padstow boys at rest.
