Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 25 March 2019

Mild March Monday morning at Newlyn fish market.


Good to see George Cleave on the market this morning, such a purveyor of quality fish...



couldn't resist the temptation to pick up fish landed from the fleet's inshore trawlers that braved the huge equinoctial tides over the weekend...


comfortable conger...


name this fish...


big red tub gurnard, best baked whole...


there's a few John Dory on some of the grounds it seems, summer must be around the corner...


meanwhile plaice...


and lemons are now the main target for some of the inshore boats...


along with JDs...


while boats like the New Venture...


and Millennia have been doing well picking away at the lemons and Dovers...


on the north coats, St Ives handliners have been taking advantage of the abundant mackerel shoals...


though the vast majority are medium is size...


plenty of boxes of one species...



the beam trawler  St Georges put in a good shot of megrim sole...


today, as the big tides drop below 18 feet the rest of the netters should take ice and head for the hake grounds again...


plenty of early morning sun shines on the solar panels of the newly refurbished market in Newlyn...


St Georges relaxing after her trip...


not only is the Fishermen's Arms enclosed in a scaffolding shroud so is Pat Plumbridg'e house next door - she was a previous landlady of the pub back in the 60s and 70s...


another piece of history rusts out on a harbour pier...
