Monday morning fish auction in Newlyn.

 

Unity under heavy overcast skies...


in Newlyn harbour this morning...


with heavy showers passing overhead...


though the forecast for much of the day is for some sunshine which should let Rowse's team get on with painting and antifouling the hull of their new crabber-to-be...


young James looks well protected as he over-ends a tier of nets aboard the Bonnie Grace...


with the harbour cafe closed until further notice it's good to see breakfast is being served in the Swordfish...


last minute call back to the office...


as Monday morning's market draws to a close...


which was well supplied with MSC certified hake from the Britannia V...


a handful of bass from the handlineers over the weekend...


the Stelissa's first trip after her refit will be on tomorrow's market...


curled beam trawl Dovers...


plenty of haddock for the James RHi...


and a good shot of plaice including these specimen examples...


while the Cornishman had her share too...


handline mackerel...


and a run of reds...


while young George found a box of medium size ling irresistible...


those tub gurnards keep coming...


and the odd large squid...


name this fish seldom seen on fish shop slabs...



there's often only a handful of cod on the market these days owing partly to the tiny quota boats are expected to fish.
