Finer weather for #FishyFriday in Newlyn


Fish caught by every method used by the fleet in Newlyn filled all four market fridges this morning...


including a good run of MSC Certified hake from the big netters...


all of whom have made good landings of...



big spurdogs...


these rare Mediterranean sure to fetch a premium price are just in time to be snapped up and served over the Bank Holiday weekend by a local restaurant...


just one example of the wide range of fish caught and landed by the inshore fleet...


while the big beam trawlers target fish like monk...


the visiting netters always pick up good shots of John Dory west of the Scillys...


they also prefer to land their monk whole - as is their practise in their home ports in Scotland...


fish like red mullet...


brill...


and ray...


are caught in good quantities by the big beam trawl fleet...


it might be May but there's a distinct nip in the air this morning...


despite the blazing sunshine...


that keeps the buyers and porters on the move...


as they head en-mass for the next boat to be sold...


all is calm in the harbour...


the number of visiting yachts on the pontoon berths an indication that the sailing season is now officially underway...


the innovative sorting pounds installed on the Spirited Lady III...


together with her heavy combination bridles that travel ahead of the trawl designed to disturb the seabed and drive flatfish out of the sand and into the path of the oncoming trawl...



the company's heraldic shield...


a sure sign...


waiting for fuel with light winds forecast...


as ever time moves at a slower pace on Cornish clocks when it comes to pub times.
