Final #FishyFriday in Newlyn.


Topping off a busy week in Newlyn this monster tub gurnard landed from the St Georges...


along with these specimen brill...


and, unusually for a beam trawler,  a fine selection of conger...


plenty of octopus picked out from the boat's big haul of cuttles...


the boats are now saving monk heads to help supply the ever increasing number of pot boats working from Newlyn...


normally, the boats just land the tails which make excellent money...


classic undulate ray from the inshore trawler Still Waters...


red mullet...


and more tails from the other beam trawler to land, the Cornishman...


buyers busy bidding on beam trawl fish...


the biggest bass landed went to young George this morning...


pristine pollack...


and plenty of mackerel for the boats that managed to get away in St Ives Bay yesterday...


more work for Lionel washing the market floor after the tons of cuttles have been sold...


end of season inshore trawl John Dory...


the sardine boat Asthore about to land a few tons...


big tides prevail so the netting fleet are still in port...


looks like some of the netting crews have taken up cycling to keep fit and enjoy the local area...


transport networks are vital to the distribution of highly perishable fish - and Newlyn is part of an amazing international network.
