Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Thursday, 26 March 2020

We pray for our soles!


While uncertainty about the ability of markets to ship out catches and the price of fish make it unviable for many of the fleet to stay fishing there are no such signs in the channel (Bristol Channel that is) as a fleet of beam trawlers from Belgium, Holland and local beam trawlers make the most of seasonal Dover sole fishing, traditional for this time of year. Dover soles are some of the most valuable fish landed on Newlyn, Plymouth and Brixham markets.
