Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 19 October 2020

Monday morning auction on Newlyn fish market.

 

Newlyn netters riding high at high water on a big spring tide...


looks like work in progress on the Stelissa...


as the crew of the Algrie overhaul her beam trawls on deck...

pulling sold fish off the market...


skipper Billy Worth and his preference for landing directly to the fish market at high water...



while Jeremy and crew on the inshore crabber Nazarene prepare boxes of bait for what will be a scuffly day on the pots...

that's a specimen JD from the New Venture...


plenty of plaice from the beam trawl boats...




along with a handful of big monk tails...


and specimen plaice...


soles are the staple catch of beam trawlerers, both Dover...


and megrim, most of which are exported to Spain...


Covid-19 cover-up...


young Roger cannot leave those JDs alone...


nice trip from the inshore trawler Milennia...


some of the handliners from St Ives saw a few more mackerel on their hooks over the weekend...


while the Newlyn buccas in Mounts Bay went jigging for squid...


or pollack...


a good shot of Dovers from the Men Dhu...


looks like Tom on the Harvest Reaper picked up a couple of good boxes of JDs from under Roger's nose - Tom's well-known artist mum, Daphne has an exhibition of her work at the Cornwall Contemporary Gallery in Penzance from this week through to November 14th...


a brace of big butts from the Cornishman...


a ghostly looking eel...


just the one bass from Tom...


but plenty of ray wings...



good to see big monk heads being landed rather than put back to feed the crabs.
