Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 20 September 2019

It's #FishyFriday in Newlyn.


Yet another stunning start to the day in Newlyn...


though the warm glow...


soon fades as the sun nears the horizon..


oblivious to all this, ex-trawler skipper Edward Harvey starts his day's work net setting...


as the morning auction gets underway...


with a good run of hake from the netter Stelissa...


while the beam trawler Lisa Jacqueline landed plenty of John Dory...


and a surprisingly big shot of cod for the time of year...


along with a good run of witches...


the beam trawler will be hoping for a better cuttlefish season this year after last year's slow start...


solid evidence that boats are adhering to the landing obligation and retaining on board undersized quota fish...


name this ray...


the reddest of red mullet...


they might be a gory sight but that much blood indicates just how fresh these fish are, just hours old...


name these round white fish...


pristine line caught squid...


some plaice have very bright spots...


glistening skin and clear eyes are another excellent indicator of freshness...


the main auction in progress...


there's a stiff breeze this morning...


the crabber Emma Louise is undergoing a refit...


waiting to complete loading before the MTS Terramare heads for the Scillys...


the resolute has had a small section added to the height of her net pound to accommodate her new Peruvian net...


major winch job on the beamer...


what better place to enjoy some Friday night fun and the rugby world cup over the weekend...


another visiting scalloper...


the visiting MTS Terramare is built like a landing craft...


Sea Lady another visiting scalloper...


three of the Rowse crabbing fleet at rest.
