Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 7 December 2020

Newlyn's Monday morning's fish market.

The weekend saw a mixed landing of fish from beam and inshore trawlers which included a few boxes of haddock...


some late season John Dory...


plenty of spotted dogfish that go for crab boat bait...


though it might come as a surprise to Roger to find tat he is using gill nets on his inshore trawler Immy...


good to see young Mr Bacon bringing home some mackerel from the bay...


plenty more handy-sized haddock...


and a good run of ray...


in addition to a good landing of hake the Silver Dawn landed a good proportion of his spurdog quota for the year...



looks like there's another foreign boat landing today - part of the Brexit deal will be an expectation that UK Flagged vessels will have to land 80% of their annual catch AND put it on the open market as opposed to transporting 90% of the fish they catch back to their own country as they do at present.
