Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Tuesday, 12 October 2021

Magical Monday morning in Newlyn.


When the light is as good as this...



Newlyn is the place to be with your camera...

to capture the early morning action...

as the netters...


get set for the coming neap tide, leave their berths...


head for the ice works...


and take ice...


leaving skipper Richard Carrol on crabber, Nicola of Ladram patiently waiting for a berth to pick up his bait for the day...

the auction is underway with Cap'n Cod landing the...


result of yesterday's labours...


along with his fellow inshore fishers...


including plenty from the boys over Falmouth way who put ashore plenty of mackerel...


over the years there have only been a handful of Rays bream landed on the market, seen much more often on Scottish auctions, this one priced out at around £16 a kilo...


seemingly just as elusive squid in any quantity are still hard to come by


unlike plentiful plaice...


inshore trawl John Dory and ray...


with a good spread of Dovers...


Nigel has his work cut out getting a ton of gear aboard the good ship Phoenix...

no doubt he would be happy to see a few of these drop on the deck late in the day...


this year has seen consistent ray landings for the inshore boats...


and even John Dory are still keen to show their faces on the market...


more than enough to keep buyers like young George happy with boxes of top quality fish to satisfy their demanding restauranteur customers...

keeping a watchful eye on the things, Ivan Ellen at est...


the latest crabber in the fleet, the Galway registered Molly Bawn.
