Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 9 November 2018

Fabulous start to #FishyFriday in Newlyn!


Four beam trawlers were the only boats to land for this mornings market as big tides and gales conspired to keep most of the fleet bound in port...


big tub gurnard...


turbot, scallops...


and bass made good money...


along with a few boxes of cephalopods...


a good run of brill...


and unusually for a beam trawler a dozen boxes of hake...


for one of the beamers there was only a handful of cuttles...


to go with a good shot of ray...


while two of the beamers managed to amass a few more tubs between them...


like the TwilightIII...


red mullet...


lemons...


John Dory...


monk...


and Dover soles all made good money with  the prospect of bad weather reducing supplies to all fish markets in the UK for the next few days...


so buying was brisk...


there is a lull between storms this morning...


so the sardine boat Asthore sailed at 2am to take advantage and the early start paid off...


for the boat and crew...


as they were able to fill her up with well over 20 tons of fish...


much to the delight of the harbour's resident gull population...


brailing the fish ashore...


250kg at a time...


with a few stops to admire...


the stunning sunrise...


once the auction and landing is over it's time to take advantage of breakfast รก la Swordfish Inn...


with a few well-known faces holding forth.
