Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.




Fish Expo 2018




Friday, 4 May 2018

It's another very #FishyFriday in Newlyn.


The mix of warm, water-laden sea air and low temperature seawater often fills the bay at this time of year...


and in so doing produces lots of dramatic sky images...


unlike the new strongly lit fish market in Newlyn...


and its excellently durable new floor valiantly resisting the onslaught of sepia ink attack every morning...


or playing host to tons of superb quality inshore and line caught fish like these fish from one of the newest boats in the fleet, young Mr Smith's Maverick...


or pristine pollack from Cap'n Cod on the Butts...


much sought after by those supplying restaurants...


with John Dory...


red mullet...


tub gurnards...


and even redder mullet...


matched only by the size of these huge ray wings...


all of which are guaranteed to put a smile on the faces of those hardened brothers-in-arms from Newlyn Fish and Fal(mouth)Fish...


missing from the menus down this are are squid - not being landed in any great quantity...


unlike south-west special, the John Dory...


 caught here by young Roger Nowell, Mr Dory himself on the Imogen III...


there were also some superb trap-caught cuttles...


and a cracking greater weaver that did not go un-noticed by @eastcoastavocet visiting the port...


as the fish already sold was whisked away by the draggers...+


not necessarily the hand of God...


only a handful of the fleet are in for the weekend...


dejá vu or, ramp number two under construction...


for all those concerned, what were the results of the 'Live Wrasse' meetings?..


top Scottish prawn freezer, Nereus is back in port...


two fast grey hulls...


free life-jacket sessions over the next few days - get yours checked over...


not a better way to start the day than a cooked breakfast in the Fishermen's Café opposite the fish market in Newlyn.
