Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Thursday evening to the final #FishyFriday of October


With heavy ground seas forcing there way deep into Mounts Bay the Scillonian III spent Wednesday evening into Thursday morning riding at anchor in Gwavas Lake...


by mid-afternoon on Thursday the effect of these powerful passing seas could be seen at the entrance to Newlyn harbour, the movement in the water more reminiscent of an ebbing river...


on to Friday morning and fish are already being whisked off the market floor...


conger eels inhabit the darker recesses of the ocean...


while these bream are no doubt set to brighten up lucky local diners' dinner plates over the next few evenings...


lemon sole - if you don't know how, ask and your favourite fishmonger will trim them ready to grill or bake whole - lemons, like many flatfish benefit from being cooked on the bone...


the name is everywhere, but maybe it won't be long before these iconic red fish boxes are a thing of the past...


St Georges and the monk tails, doesn't quite have the same ring as dragons...


today, there were no boxes of line caught fish to sell from the inshore fridge this morning, blame the weather...


but there were plenty of MSC Certified hake courtesy of the Stelissa...


handle with care - the innocuous little black spiked dorsal fins on these greater weavers pack a pretty painful punch when pricked...


the orange team at rest...
