First #FishyFriday in December.

Just the two beam trawlers landing any trips of fish on this Friday's market, cod is not landed in any quantity at this time of year...


name these fish...


some of the more unusual fish landed by the BillY Rowney included red mullet by the boxfull... 


along with squid...


and greater weavers, their poisonous dorsal spines having been carefully removed when caught...


congers often have a rather odd expression on their faces...


possibly these ray are so named because the pattern on the topside of them vaguely resembes that of a fledgling cuckoo...


the Cornishman had their fair share of mullet too...


whileboth boats landed good shots of lemons...


monk...


plaice...


megrim...


and Dover soles...


plenty fo handliners put to sea for the very best in quality fish like this brace of bass...



red mullet...


and mackerel...


big tides mean the netting fleet has a few days off between trips...


Cornishman, all lit up and ready to go later today...



this HGV waiting on the quay would suggest there's a flag of convenience boat on the way in to land.
