Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 20 January 2020

Finally, some fish on the market in Newlyn!


Biggest bream on the market for awhile, but which bream?...


boxes of roe signal spawning time for some species like pollack...


which are caught on both rough ground and wrecks in fixed nets...


it's a flatfish, but which one?..


specimen brill...


in the depths of winter landings of fish like these John Dory...


and red mullet are light...


while rays of all types like these blondes...


and stars are plentiful...


the bulk of the quality fish on the market this morning were from the inshore trawl fleet...


some like the Harvest Reaper and New Venture made excellent landings of ray for their time at sea over the weekend...


Tom even had a good sized bass for his efforts...


while the Serene piled in on pollack...


the New Venture also picked up good hauls of Dover sole...


while the handline fleet filled half the fridge with mackerel from the weekend...


just missing Monday morning's market the Charisma lands her trip of hake and big whitefish...


under the watchful eye of staff from the MMO...


Newlyn Harbour, so good they named the boxes twice...


it's -1˚ this morning, not often vehicles in the harbour sparkle with frost...


not that Tom, cast in bronze ever feels the cold but his view of the crystal clear skies...


overt he bay are not as good as for those who live 'up Pail Hill'!
