Daffs 'n Taffs on the market


The daffs were out in force this morning as a contingent of Celtic cousins from Wales hit town - members of the Cywain project whose aim is to foster, develop and market primary produce for the region...



and unlike last year's visit there was with a pretty full market compared to last year's when those appalling winter storms meant there were no fish on the market...


an opportunity to see some properr Corrnish fish, though milford Haven was a legendary hake fishing port back in the day...


the visitors got to see plenty of Cornish hake...


and a few of the buyers just couldn't resist the opportunity for a little jollity...


while the bidding was keen...


with auctioneer Ian keeping the sale moving at a pace...


there were plenty of big white fish on the market...


and the visitors found out that Cfas regularly sample a huge number of fish on the market daily...


by recording size and taking otolith samples from selected species...


the visit will feature on both BBC Wales and South West TV this evening... 




as Lionel gives the low down on how to skin the mighty meaty gurnard - the fishy party get to make a guided tour of Matthew Stevens fish factory over at St Ives before heading off to Padstow and a meal at a well-known restaurant with strong Newlyn links - no doubt Rick Steins will serve up a sumptuous fishy feast...



down the quay as the light breaks in the sky there is evidence of continued harbour development - the new meters installed putting an end to the free supply of electricity that the port has enjoyed since time immemorial...


adding to the cool ambient light of a March morning...


as some heavy clouds continue their journey eastwards...


many of the boats are still weather-bound...


but that doesn't stop the fuel arriving down the quay...


on its way to service the beamer fleet


the harbour wakes up...


not much fun on a building job at this time of year between hail showers!
