'Tiz a fine #FishyFriday in Newlyn


Frost-free, flat calm Friday in Newlyn...


as auctioneer Ian gets the first sale underway...


and amongst the hundreds of boxes of hake...


whole monk... 


pollack...


and ling


were those fish with the thumbprint...


all good for sharpshooter Luke getting some final stills for the forthcoming BBC2 TV series on the the fishing industry in Cornwall to be screened later this year...


also starring Ian 'Ollie' Oliver...


assorted fish merchants...


like Godfrey Adams from Trelawney Fish slapping down fish tallies on the hake he has just bought...


along with the netted fish there were plenty of Dover soles with the beam trawlers that landed...


like the AA... 


while the Imogen III took advantage of the last few days to secure a few cod...

turbot...



and the odd JD...


while the mackerel landed...


by the St Ives boys were manly small, small meds and mediums...


there were so much fish on the market the west door of the fridge was blocked off by boxes...


other inshore boats like the Ocean Harvest...


landed JDs...


brill...


red mullet and sand soles...


and even a few dabs...


name these three pelagic fish...


looks like the cuttle season is all but over for another year...


young Roger Nowell would like to have picked these beauties up JDs courtesy of the Still Waters...


all of which were recorded...


by Gary collecting data for Cefas...


specimen conger...


superb lemons...


and two pristine examples of local fish chefs like Ben Tunnicliffe, Nathan Outlaw and Bruce Rennie's favourites...


grist to the mill for Luke...


landed late but still alive, cracking grey mullet...


which caught the eye of this morning's mystery buyer...


and what a morning.
