Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 26 November 2018

Monday morning in Newlyn


A familiar sight for all those fishermen working on bigger boats, leggings and boots always at the ready...


Monday's auction is well underway with the buyers busy bidding on a few boxes of hake from the Govenek of Ladram...


most of the fish this morning was from the inshore trawlers who fished a quieter spell of weather over the weekend like the Harvest Reaper and her fine pair of ray wings...


and several boxes of big flat fish...


 - but can you name both species?..


John Dory are not so difficult to ID...


the porters waster no time in whisking away fish that has been bought...


the Sea Spray has been mixing it with the mackerel again...


"make me an offer" says Colin...


big, beautiful bass...


and there are still good hauls of heavenly erring being put ashore...


along with the odd bream...


plaice from the trawler, New Venture...


while the only beam trawl fish came from the Filadelfia with some big ray...


and a box of those slippery eels that still give some fishermen the heebie-jeebies...


biggest of all the inshore landings came from young Roger Nowell on the Imogen III with a decent shot of squid...


and his favourite tipple, those golden John Dory...


and touched on the omni-present haddock of course...


as did Tom on the Harvest Reaper...


on an otherwise grey day...


the eating end of a cuttlefish...


the alien-like crayfish...


a couple of big Govenek hake...


heading towards the longest night of the year its is still dark enough at 7am...


though unusually, there are still a few bog yachts stopping over in the harbour at this time of year...


all you need to keep a beam trawler's gear in one piece, chain links and more chain links...


Galilee, looking smarter by the day...


just the five HGV vehicles in the lorry park this morning.
