Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 14 June 2019

It's flaming #FishyFriday in not so flaming June!





Friday's market loaded with two big trips of hake...



and turbot...





from the big netters Ajax and Joy of Ladram...


name this fish...


brown crab paws and whole crab, shades of her dark materials, or was it his?..


must be summer, the blues are back in town...


pristine line caught pollack from Mr Smith...


several of the inshore trawlers had excellent trips for the time of year including the Ocean Harvest...


and Still Waters...


a handful of these colourful bream were picked up in the cod end too...


rarest fish on the market these days are these elusive little stripey fish...


plenty of summer-fayre fish with the beam trawler AA...


spot the difference, no two plaice are the same...


there's two sides to every turbot...


Mr Cripps moving at speed...



the big stern trawler Sanamedio landed yesterday...


but, despite catching tons of monk, megrim, hake and other prime fish, all that the market in Newlyn sees of the Spanish Flag-of-convenience vessel's trip of fish are a nothing more than a token landing of low-value species conger, pollack and haddock...


apparently haddock mate for life, not to be parted...


the classic wooden yacht Lina, a long way from her Swedish home...


not so far from home are the visiting Plymouth scalloper Kingfisher BM515...


and the Plymouth trawler Boy Ethan...


the business end of the Sanamedio showing the stern ramp up which the trawl is heaved every haul...


Rowse's crabber Nimrod with young Ben at the helm...


and Harriet Eve heading out to sea...


as yet, no sign of the sun this month...



not that the current summer swarm of barrel jellyfish seem too bothered...



as they swim around the harbour...



caught on camera  in the harbour...



local wild swimmer, Katy Maggs...



though mother nature does not always look after her own, these big jellyfish often get trapped by the outgoing tide...


'tiz a moody Mont day today...


with enough breeze to keep the flower boxes and flags on the prom well aired...


though, apart from the Battery Rockers, these are likely to be the only swimmers seen on the prom today.
