Back in Through the Gaps and it's #FishyFriday here again in Newlyn


Two more of the Stevenson beam trawler fleet looking spruced up...


as the last market of the week 


in Newlyn draws to a close...


with plenty of mackerel from the handline boys...


to keep all the beach BBQs fired up over the weekend...


the only whitefish up for auction was from the beam trawler Cornishman who landed haddock...


a handful of cod...


and even a few scad...


along with a good few Dover sole...


name this fish to which these tails belong...


Luke in action shooting a ive interview with auctioneer Ryan Ladd on the market this morning...


keeping the buyers busy...


some play a much closer game...


fish away!..


some plaice are more spotty than others...


all John Dory look stunning...


brill are well worth a go if you see them on the menu - when cooking them yourself - treat them like Dover sole...


turbot are top of the class...


just one of four types of ray on the market this morning - skate are still off the landing list...


plenty of bait being landed for the crabbers...


Falfish bought some flatfish this morning...


all sold...


as the last of the fish bought are tallied up and sent back to fish HQ...


just the doors and floor to be completed on Phase II of the market refurb...


a protest flag flies high from ice works this morning...


it's smiles all round for the harbour staff proudly showing off the new NPHC logo...


and the 'new'harbour forklift...


which can shift 7.5 tons if needed...


it's coming up to the end of the spring tide so the netters are all set to take ice and sail today...


another visiting Belgian beam trawler that overlanded her fish yesterday...


with over two tons of cocaine taken out of the yacht Marcia, arrested at sea off the Scillies and escorted back to Newlyn by the Border Patrol boat Searcher and Seeker, her stern rides high out of the water without that extra ballast...


not that 2.5 tons of ballast would make much difference to how the classic sail boat Irene sits in the water.
