Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 9 July 2021

Fine rain heralds in #FishyFriday in Newlyn.

Late landings in light rain from the netters Ajax and Silver Dawn...


with a few boxes of turbot from some, occasionally the white underbelly of turbot has the same pigmentation as the upperside...


hake fishing has been slow for much of the year with water temperatures seeming to favour some species and not others...


many species of fish sport spots...


the lesser known and less often landed sand soles, easily mistaken for Dovers...


there's two sides to every turbot...


from the inshore super eco-friendly handline boats come these brilliant bass...


and pristine pollack...


while this tub gurnard...


displaying the amazing pectoral fins is possibly the largest ever landed on the market at Newlyn...


shagreen ray, once used to decorate small objects...


while blondes are just more fun...


name these fine fleshy fish...


young Mr Wilcox practising his two-step moves on the auction floor...


crawfish, beasts from the deep...


the summers is still seeing limited landings of mackerel from both sides of the Cornish peninsula...


even the Dory king is finding finding them a challenge...


a brace of brill for Tom...


it's all in the numbers for merchants as Mr Smart checks in with base...


skipper Tristan aboard the Silver Dawn all set to move...


as two of his Ghanaian crew let go the bow rope...


two top inshore boats share the early morning fish talk...


as the boys on the Ajax take off damaged hake nets...


still no signs of sardines for boats like the Golden harvest....


a visiting inshore trawler...


just a tiny segment of the sardine net yet to be mended...


things are looking busy in the Canners Slip boatyard...


fresh stores make their way in to the latest restaurant Argoe which is due to open for its first paying customers next week...


while out in the bay the Trinity vessel Galatea is busy servicing a buoy in the calm waters of Gwavas Lake.
