Turbot time!

The annual chase for turbot began in earnest this morning...


 with a solid landing of prime fish...


destined for the finest restaurant tables - on average, turbot fetch the highest prices on Newlyn fish market...


overshadowing even these big John Dory...


or even spider crab claws...


caught handling red boxes, young Mr Smart...


tries to convince an unimpressed looking St Ives fisherman that he is not moving to pastures green or converting his fish store into an upmarket casino - just yet...


down the quay it is a sort of red...

white..


and blue.
