Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 18 February 2019

Monday morning fish auction in Newlyn.


Time for the buyers to assemble around Stevenson's auctioneer Ian Oliver...


and a huge trip of hake from the Amanda of Ladram...


and concentrate on bidding for over 250 boxes of MSC certified Cornish hake...



along with over 150 boxes from the netter Ygraine which has taken a break from wreck netting...


all of which helped make it a very busy Monday morning market...


which included over 1200kg...


of superb large whiting...


other fish on the market included these perfect gurnards...


and prime examples of Dover sole...


plaice...


lemon...


and megrim soles....


often referred to as 'megs'...


there were good supplies of line caught mackerel in the middle fridge...


while the far end of the market held the auction for turbot...


ray...


squid...


more turbot...


John Dory


and brill from the beam trawlers that landed over the weekend...


helping to fill the market from end-to-end...


the Sapphire II being just one of four beam trawlers to land...


time for the porters to clear the boxes of fish...


while outside the netting fleet are back in port having completed fishing over the neap tide...


and, like Tristan on the Silver Dawn, are now in the process of taking off nets to be repaired or recycled...


good to see young Francis' boat Evening Star in the early morning light...


coming up for sale at the next Lane's auction is this Venetian snow scene by local artist, Ken Howard.
