Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 10 June 2019

Monday morning market in Newlyn.


Looking at the forecast this week Monday morning looks like it could be the calm before the storm...


coley or blackjacks as they are known locally used to be sold as fish for cats in the old 'Macfisheries' wet fish shops - they are the equivalent of cod in Germany......


haddock are caught and landed by all sectors of the fleet...


head to tail John dory...


the Stelissa  and Govenek of Ladram both landed good shots of hake...


and turbot...


while most of the inshore trawlers took advantage of a relatively fine weekend and filled up with a big mix of bottom fish...


like John dory...


monk tails...


brill...


even more monk...


while the two big beam trawlers landed big trips that included red mullet...


plaice...


while the inshore trawler not only picked up a few John Dory...


brill...


and a massive haul of mixed ray...


mackerel are still [roving hard to find with the handline guys...


while others picked up a nice little haul of restaurant-sized lobster...


to keep the buyers happy...


as they worked their way through a fairly well supplied market...


an alternative view of Newlyn...


pristine megrim, these fine fish...


were caught in big numbers by the beam trawler St Georges...


soles, but which species...


just the one netter left in Newlyn...


apart from the Charisma on the slip..


there's always a few boxes seem to go a-wandering...


Little Pearl, heading out through the gaps...


the decks of the beam trawler Cornishman all set for sailing day...


an arrangement of chain that any beamerman would recognise...


dead on target...


colourful crabber Skerry Bells is all set to deploy a few more pots when the weather allows.
