Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 21 May 2018

Monday morning's fish market in Newlyn.


Not a breath in the harbour this morning...



not too much growth below the waterline on the Sara Shaun...



it's a blue kind of day...



name that fish...



the market looks a good deal smarter these days...



'S' is for conger...



a smattering of John Dory for the inshore trawler Millennia...



along with a single bass...



and a few red mullet...



while the surest sign of summer is 37 boxes of John Dory from the trawls of the Imogen III...



don't stand too close Mr Smart, you might get zapped...



big Don landed a good shot of megrim soles...



along with plenty of monk and other quality flats...



all of which kept the buyers busy bidding...



name that fish...



plenty of pristine line caught pollack...



a few bass...



and the odd box of mackerel...



along with still more trap-caught cuttles...



kept both auctioneers busy...



big tub gurnards are more prevalent with the grounds the inshore trawlers work at this time of year...



while the small handliners are enjoying bumper pollack days...



in addition to the cuttle-traps...



still more pollack...



and even a box of snakes...



and superb red mullet...



with reactions to match prices...



kept the buyers on their toes...



a handful of hake...



blood is always a good indication of just how fresh the fish is being landed...



name this fish...



on reflection...



looks like time for a little light gardening on the harbour's granite steps...



where the carpet of weed growth...



would make a fine lawn...



and sets the boats of nicely...



portent of another fine day out to sea...



Unity and the Crystal Sea at rest...




just two of the boats that make up this morning's panoramic view of the Mary Williams pier...



the Govenek of Ladram at rest.
