Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 9 July 2018

Monday morning market in Newlyn


Newlyn at 6am, no wind and not a cloud in the sky...


fresh anti-fouling and a serviced bow-thruster...


check out the specially configured rudder and prop guard that is designed to prevent the sardine getting caught...


it's a full market this morning with fish from every kind of boat landed over the weekend...


more than enough to keep Gary and his Cefas apprentice busy...


boat tally...


boat tally that meets the new MMO regulations for labelling and traceability...


prime monk tails...


the grading machine has had a trial run in its new location...


and seems to be working OK...


it now feeds straight into the chill room...


plenty of John Dory with the inshore boats over the weekend...


size 1 megrom soles...


size 2 monk tails...


size 3 Dover sole...


the mackerel boats are happy to catch any size at the moment...


perfect John Dory...


and lush lemon sole...


first market visit for the new trainee fishing course - really encouraging to see all of them here for the second week of their training programme...


big, fat, juicy turbot...


hungry hake from the hake form the Britannia V...


out into the morning sun...


stack 'em high, a good days work on the pollack for an inshore boat...


not quite so productive chasing the elusive old bass...


shellfish in the summer...


red mullet, black bream...


those scales could only come from one fish....


more info per box - the definitive guide to labelling fish at the first point of sale (at auction) can be found here...


big mouth...


early morning puff...


a cat, bound away from Newlyn...


every bit of unnecessary gear is off the Asteria for her MCA incline test today...


there's a happy chappy on sailing day...


black and white flag of St Piran...


New Venture, taking a berth at the iceworks before heading out on another John Dory foray...



the old Mission clocktower.
