Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 5 December 2018

Mid-week market in Newlyn.


Plenty of boxes, plenty of fish, plenty of buyers this morning...


with some bulk landings of hake from netters like the Karen of Ladram...


and tons of mackerel from the St Ives handliners...


along with the biggest landing of cuttles so far this season...


mixed in with some real quality fish...


liuke red mullet...


haddock...


Dover sole...


megrim sole...


and even a few bull huss...


sepia ink from the cuttles...


stains everything it comes into contact with...


but makes superb eating - if you haven't - try some - plenty of good recipes out there...



this rare 5.5kg Mediterranean octopus beauty...


has huge suckers...


unlike the more common local variety...


the hungry herring - rolled in oats & grilled is a fav...


just one of the thousands of mackerel landed this morning...


along with a few bass...


black...


and red bream...


guess the fish...


that the buyers are bidding on..


our entry for this year's Turner prize...


ray fishing is slack at this time of year...


the fat laden skin of the conger eel...


one big blonde...


goes down in the book...


it's not a Dover sole...


the one and only...


my ling-a-ling...


and finally a brace of sharks to boot.
