Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 9 October 2020

It's a fairly #FishyFriday in Newlyn!

Forty shades of orange...


always good to see a boat look after their hauls of whiting - one of the more delicate white fish which do not appreciate being thrown around...


plaice...


and monk tails are a little more resilient


as are lemons...


while mackerel need all the TLC they can get...


as do red mullet, their scales don't stay in place for long after entering the cod end......


John Dory...


and ray rank up their with the toughest of them...


while these beautiful squid, their thin, brown outer membrane intact, reflect they method by which they were caught, one at a time using jigs...


big bold bass often fish in a surf break and are no strangers to fighting for their food...


these pristine monk tails...

sans tĂȘte...


Red Bull gives you ray wings so the story goes...



time to sort those megrim soles...


plenty of plaice helped make up the 150 box trip from the beam trawler St Georges...



not a breath of wind overnight, which meant that most of the sardine fleet were back in before midnight with their catches.
