Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 17 June 2020

Busy mid-week market in Newlyn.


Great to see the punt, PZ584 landing alongside the fish market...


skippered by local hero Cod who, despite having artificial legs still puts in many long hours at sea handling for his fish...


while aboard the beam trawler Resurgam her latest trip was landed...


four boxes at a time...


this morning's market included these prime haddock from the netter Ocean Pride...


plenty of quality flats from the beam trawler Trevssa IV...


and the usual mix of quality fish from Tom on the Harvest Reaper...


including top drawer fish like John Dory...


and flats like brill and turbot...


while the Stelissa piled in with hake


plenty of big turbot from the Ocean Pride...


and more MSC Certified hake from the Silver Dawn...


though this morning's dawn was far from silver...


more closely matching the hull colour of the mini-scalloper on the hard opposite the fish market.
