Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Tuesday, 7 May 2019

Flooded with fish this Tuesday morning on the market in Newlyn.


Whole monkfish - the stuff nightmares are made of...


red gurnard keeping an eye on things...


to the untrained eye it would be hard to tell the difference between a Dover sole and these little fellas...


red mullet and turbot - what a quality mix!..


the mighty MSC Certified Cornish hake...


it's the time of year when landings of megrim soles grow by the day as the boats move off to deeper waters...


cuttlefish - the ocean's tiger...


pristine line caught blackjack (coley)...


and pollack...


fish like these plaice from the Imogen III always looks like it was landed still alive...


as do these lemons from the Ocean Harvest...


whiting only look as good as this when they are looked after well and trawl times are kept to 3 or 31/2 hours a tow...


Tom picked up a few handbag sized John Dory aboard the Harvest Reaper...


taking advantage of high-water the William Sampson Stevenson begins to land her fish directly to the market...


while the beam trawler Louisa N makes good her beam trawls and the visiting prawn trawler Nereus prepares to sail after landing her first run of Cornish langoustine for the season...


these boats often keep both beams raised to ensure a stable working environment, even in port...


this morning's visitor, Commodore-P built for work on offshore windfarms...


work gets underway on stern of the slipped James RH Stevenson.
