Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 7 February 2020

Plenty of fish for this #FishyFriday in Newlyn.



Ian conducts the first auction on the market this morning with a huge range of fish up for sale and the buyers spoilt for choice whether it be


lingering ling...


huge haddock...


quality cod...


scintillating scad...


meaty monk...


red red mullet...



magnificent mackerel...


spotty smoothhound...


delicious Dory...


luscious leons...


gargantuan gurnards


'appy 'ake...


congruous conger...


ravenous ray...


brilliant brill...


pristine plaice...


or scintillating scallops...


almost all the mackerel landed on the market at Newlyn is caught by fishermen working single-handed with hooks and line...


there's a few local restaurant owners like Bruce Rennie at The Shore in Penzance that will be delighted to see the boats starting to land monk livers...



meanwhile, down the quay and well before sunrise sparks are flying as a welding job is completed on one of the port's biggest beam trawlers - fishing is pretty much a 24/7 job.
