Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Fishing ends 2020 in Newlyn.

It was left to the Ocean Pride to project a little Christmas cheer across the harbour this year...


while the shore side produced a bumper totally recycled tree in Keel Alley...


on what was to be the last export market of the year three beam trawl trips gave the buyers plenty to bid on, though this huge (for a beam trawler) shot of bass was an unexpected bonus for the boys on the St Georges with exceptional prices reflecting the time of year...


one of those elusive big congers came up in the cod end again...


along with tis solitary big John Dory...


plenty of brill...



and some cracking ray...


including this gorgeous undulate...


and a solitary cod...


the Rowney didn't have quite the luck on the bass score...


plenty of scallops though...


and some smart looking gurard...


megrim sole are not a winter thing....


but decent plaice are...


and lemons...


and overs of course...



some going to local buyers...

and some keen to know where they will end up...



monk supplies were tight...


this big shot of bass from an inshore boat should at least give the Sea Foam something to smile about over Christmas...



along with these cracking reds...

what with the borders shut and sky high prices many buyers like young George were left scratching their heads...



 hoping to win a few more bids to stick their counters and supply their customers...


the decks are clear all set for next year aboard the Algrie...


with all but the crabbers now in port for the break...



at the end of a pretty gloomy year...


so let's hope the arrival of Santa heralds some seasonal cheer


spread far and wide...



merry Christmas to one and all!


there's light at the end of the tunnel!
