Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 12 June 2019

Mid-week market in Newlyn.


Visiting Brixham stern trawler Angelina comes round...



as the local inshore potter Girl Pamela heads to the fish market to collect bait for the day...



just some of the discarded fish that boats new have to land since the introduction of the Landing Obligation...



strong markings on this cuckoo ray...



this is a black bream...



this is a black bream alongside a Couch's bream, boats seldom catch more than one type of bream at a time...



the unmistakable spots of the plaice...



whole monk...



which fish is this?..



the prawn Trawler Vision II caught plenty of them west of the Scillys...



just landed, net fish from the Amanda of Ladram...



plenty of haddock with the big Scottish prawn trawler...



bass don't come much bigger than this beauty...



well iced megrim sole...



Dover sole generally have much darker skin than their sand sole cousins, and grow much bigger...



one is a blonde ray...



and the other one with spots is a spotted ray, but which is which?..



whole monk, head on...



bidding wars, fish buyer Godfrey 'The Landlord' Adams in auction action...



for a round fish gurnards have surprisingly fat bellies - which allows them to traverse the ocean floor scavenging for food...



a brace of monk...



big, fat, juicy John Dory from west of the Scillys...



with the netters having just sailed there wasn't much hake on the market this morning...



but first back on the tide is the Amanda of Ladram...



putting her hake ashore for tomorrow morning's market...



how to secure a shore rope that has a permanent eye spliced in it to a ring...



inshore boats in action...



let's hope so...



ex-MFV Challenge now live-aboard...



a line of Cornish sardine boats wait for the season to start, not many weeks to go now...



there's a constant stream gear across the quays...



to keep the boats on working order and fishing...



within minutes of the fish auction at Newlyn ending tons of fish are on their way to the processor for distribution...




let's hope Lidl follows Morrisons in putting locally sourced fish in their stores...



to go on our summer BBQs - when the sun arrives in flaming June...



the local fishing industry and maritime heritage of Cornwall provide the art world with a never ending source of subjects for creative minds...



laying astern of a navigation mark that she was built to service and maintain, the Trinity House vessel, Galatea at anchor...



looks like there is substantial and wave inspired construction work underway in the bounds of the Jubilee Pool.
