#FishyFriday in Newlyn


The netter Annie May is 'up on the hard' for some minor attention below the waterline...



as #FishyFriday's auction gets underway...



more of the auction action being caught for the forthcoming TV series...


plenty of hake from two netters this morning...


while the beam trawlers landed a few soles of the Dover...


and megrim variety


along with other flats like these plaice...


and monk tails...


all sharks seem to have particularly penetrating eyes more reminiscent of felines...


whereas the ling is one of those that sport goggle-eyes when brought rapidly to the surface...


plenty of mackerel again from the handliners - despite the gale force winds that hit the south coast...


along with a good box of scad...


four different kinds of shark...


and with summer all but over and the weather showing distinctly autumnal tendencies the number of John Dory landed is diminishing week on week...


those ray wings look too tasty...


probably the first time a netter has ever landed a bag of scallops?..


specimen thornback ray...


the lightness on the feet is almost balletic...


you can just make out the row of 'eyes' on the open scallop...


whereas these haddock...


and hake are there for all to see...


another good shot of MSC Certified hake form the Britannia V...


making Newlyn England's premiere hake port...


just a few blackjacks from the Govenek of Ladram...


as the sun begins to throw some light over the harbour forklifts sweep in to pick up the pallets of fish boxes...


not quite dawn yet over the Annie May...



and the harbour.
