Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Mizzly monday morning in Newlyn

Not the best day to be scrubbing off the hull and applying a coat of anti-fouling on the mizzly stat to the week - but then it is the summer solstice, flaming June the 21st and all that, the longest day of the year to boot...


things are much drier inside the fish auction chill rooms, with the turbot netter Celtic Dawn...


putting an excellent shot of Cornish turbot ashore...


leaving young James with just a few of these top fish for his weekend's work...


big ray also fell prey to the big tangle netter's gear...


while one inshore boat picked up a few creepy-crawlies...


the beam trawler Algrie weighed in with a good shot of monk tails...

Dovers...



and brill...

and this cracking one stone plus turbot...


these red mullet, iced and protected by cellophane film contrast nicely against the green boxes of the Stevenson fleet...

the Ygraine's tagle nets also picked up a good haul of brown crab..


to go with their turbot target...


while the gill-netter Stelissa stuck with catching MSC certified hake this trip...


and the odd bull huss...


these guys are tastier than they look, always worth trying out  different fish so if you see some onyour fishmonger's counter give the humble scad a go, good for the grill or BBQ, as soon as the weatherman provides us with the suitable climatic conditions...


why the spurdog got its name...


tub gurnard, sheer culinary piscine pleasure...


Newlyn, home of the hake and no doubt bound for Chelsea... 


not sure that alongside the old fenders is the best place for the 114 year old wooden sailing vessel Irene to be berthed...

while some sleep on...


seems Andrew is one of the few to tough it out this morning...


shellfish vivier transport has arrived to offload the Nicola of Ladram's brown crab catch...


glazing installed, decking almost finished, things are shaping up on the Argoe front.
