Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 7 November 2018

Where have the cuttles scuttled?





This day last year, the market floor was awash with cuttlefish ink...



as over 26000kg (26 tons) were landed by the end of the week - making a total of 244,000kg (244tons) since the season started in late September...



wind the clock forward a year and this morning three tubs (750kg) of cuttlefish from a single boat were up for auction on the market - making a total of around 6000kg (6 tons) for the same period as last year...



the grounds are fished by boats working from both Newlyn, Plymouth, Brixham...



and boats from further afield like Ireland, three of which are seen here heading for home off Lands End at the end of their trips this morning.
