Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Saturday, 21 August 2021

It seems the PM & Cabinet MPs are not the only ones on holiday - where are the hakes?



The hake netter Ajax makes the first hake landing for the this neap tide - but 65 boxes after three days is not what the doctor ordered - an average would trip would see the boats return with more like 65 per day, hopefully, prices will be reflected by increased demand...


inside the market there's a good mix of fish including a box of claws...


and craws...


plenty of plaice form the Trevessa V...


a good run of John Dory from our resident Northern Irish boat, Unity...


who left the megrim catching to the beamer...


these guys are still very much in short supply...


not so Dover sole...


one of the less common sharks landed in Newlyn, but which one?..


these guys always remind me of a sock puppet...


best bass...



that's one big 'butt...
 

young Roger retired?, some people just can't leave it alone...


nipping out to haul a few tiers, Bonnie Grace...

as the Ajax heads back to pick up her gear...


and heading for the gaps next...



the Rachel of Ladram...


heads back out to pick up her nets again =having been left out at sea while the boat came in and landed.
