Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Tuesday, 19 November 2019

Newlyn, home of the finest inshore fish in the west!


Monday night on the market: After a 14 hour day - nearly two hours to steam to Lands End, fish for ten hours then a two hour steam home the Wiffer is happy to be sticking tallies on a good haul of pollack...



over 14 tons of black gold, as cuttles are known up in Brixham, leave their mark on the market floor......


and the boxes used to store them aboard the boat, young Nicky Cripps has the task of box washing for the night...


in the process of creating the first in a series of planned podcasts for his new Passion For Seafood blog, Mike Warner tries to put into words the stunning quality of the pollack landed from the day boats...


like these Couch's bream...


brilliant blonde ray wings...


 and this superb Mediterranean octopus...


just a small selection of the fish up for auction this morning...


and what a morning too...


an intense range of pink and purple hues...


 filled the sky and harbour waters...


more than enough to put a big smile on the face of David Hichens skipper of the James RH Stevenson...


and Syrus working the whipping drum of the winch...


to land their haul of 250 boxes in just four days at sea...


and, despite everything, it's all smiles from Dale...


as he helps the guys land well over 300 boxes of cuttles...


he even gets a smile from Roger...


as he and Ian, wearing yet another hat, push and pull the fish onto the market.
