Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 14 October 2019

Monday morning market in Newlyn.







With no beam trawlers landing tis morning the bulk of the fish from the weekend was from the hake netter Stelissa...


landing a 220 box trip of hake...


and not forgetting the swordfish...


which weighed in at 57 kilos...


and garnered the interest of a few buyers...



however, there was plenty of prime fish from the inshore boats like the Still Waters...


Milennium...


and New Venture...


with ray wings...


and whole ray on the sales list...


at this time of year bass all along the south coast of England are on the move as they head for the spawning season...


which gives the inshore guys a chance to deploy their lines for these beautiful fish...


which is why inshore fishermen feel justified in having major concerns over the largely un-monitored activities of huge freezer trawlers like the Margiris operating near grounds known to be home to spawning bass...


where the bulk of her trawling has been concentrated on a small area just outside the 12 mile limit off Brighton for the last 13 days...



Dennis Pascoe, the grandfather of handline fishermen in Newlyn who has has caught more mackerel than he could care to remember discusses that most tasty of fish!  Let's hope some of these worthy fish end up on the menu at the likes of the Tolcarne, The Shore and The Vault where ex-Rick Stein chef Jamie Porter is now in residence!
