Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 28 November 2018

Gales and more gales - mid-week market in Newlyn.


not all boats target cuttles at this time of year, the sum total of cuttlefish for the beam trawler Filadelfia - showing just how territorial these fish are - if you're not in the right place you won't catch them...


but the big man did pick up a few conger...


while the Rowney managed a few red mullet...


and the handliners picked up plenty of mackerel in St Ives Bay - those that braved the heavy weather anyway...


just enough to keep the buyers happy knowing that by the end of the week there won't be any fish on the market owing to the continuing poor weather when boats will only just start to head back to sea later in the week...


young Mr Curtis does love his quality flats...


cousins to the Dover sole...


looks like the cuttles have picked up over the last few weeks for the big boats...


leaving the market floor awash with...


the sepia ink for which they are renowned - the ink is used in cooking as a flavouring and as a natural colourant for things like pasta...


the Sapphire III landed a ew Dovers...


to go with the monk tails...


and plaice from the Billy Rowney...


Mark also sneaked a few JDs ashore...


assorted head and ear-warming wear...


as the buyers bid on the last few boxes of the auction...


the fish gets hauled away by forklift...


to the waiting transport...


and that's it for another day.
