Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Thursday, 20 December 2018

Final fish market in Newlyn for 2018!


Final #FishyThursday fish market of 2018 at Newlyn gets underway...


and as usual there are plenty of top quality fish up for auction like these beautiful bass...


hake from the Govenek of Ladram, the last netter to land...


all keenly contested by the buyers this morning...


and orchestrated by Ian,  chief auctioneer and conductor of proceedings who will no doubt be looking forward to a sherry or two over the next few days as he won't have to wake at 4am for a while...


as he won't have to get the best possible prices for fish like these mackerel...


or turbot...


as Luke grabs the final footage for the year as a fitting end to the forthcoming BBC2 Cornwall fishing documentary series scheduled for Spring next year...


with two beam trawlers landing there were plenty of Dover soles...


monkfish...


and an unusual plaice without its customary pristine-white belly...


there's an increase in the overall TAC for haddock next year which can only be a good ting for boats fishing in ICES Area VII...


Edwin topped up the last of his pre-Christmas buying spree this morning with some lovely lemons...


which disappeared rather quickly off the market floor...
