A very vibrant, busy Newlyn market this morning with an abundance and wide variety of fish.
Prices held reasonably firm right the way through the three hour sale.
Compare the scene to just a week ago where the morning market was over in just a few minutes.
Ten more boats have been added to our "Local Boats" page - please click Here to view them. all boats pictured are from either Newlyn or Mousehole harbours.
Pictured here is the "Diana Marion" berthed in Newlyn and skippered and owned by Matthew Keast. We've known Matthew for a long time and his fishing methods and sustainable outlook epitomises what we look for in day-boat caught fish. His line-caught Pollack for example is of exceptional quality.
Very busy day today for "Fishy Friday" with lots of different species ordered by our customers. Our fish today included Turbot, Monkfish, Red Mullet, Pollack, Gurnard, Lemon Sole, Plaice, Haddock, Mackerel, Cod, Megrim and Dover Sole.
Fish Box Scheme
We also launched our new fish box scheme today where customers can order a regular box of fish, delivered to their door, on a regular basis, for example weekly or fortnightly.
Today's boxes contained Gurnard, Pollack, Plaice, Haddock and Lemon Sole and all for the unbelievable price of £10. If you are interested in joining the scheme then please contact us on 07977 689 689 and we'll tell you all about it and answer any questions that you may have.
Our new fish box scheme will be available shortly. In the meantime please contact us with your orders for the week ahead on 07977 689 689
Weather was up to its old tricks again yesterday - just the 58m.p.h gusts recorded at Lands End. This obviously precluded many of the inshore vessels from getting out to sea which meant a lack of supply both yesterday evening and this morning.
Mackerel has been in short supply with the Newlyn and Mousehole boats struggling to really "kick off" their season this year whilst things have just started to pick up on the north coast for the St.Ives boats. On Newlyn market this morning there was only 6Kg of mackerel landed in total. Things are expected to greatly improve with a slightly better weather forecast for the week ahead.
We managed to find some excellent quality Monkfish today for our customers. Here is a fantastic recipe for a Monkfish and Coconut Curry from the brilliant "Fish is the Dish" website.
Had a wide range of fish and shellfish in this morning. Species included Turbot, Brill, Mackerel, Gurnard, Plaice, Red Mullet and several Lobster - the biggest of which was 3.5Kg.
We had some fantastic Monkfish in today and at a great price too. There was also line-caught Pollack, Cod and Mackerel.
We have another landing of Mackerel coming in to us today at
4-30pm so please contact us asap on 07977 689 689 if you wish for any to be delivered to you from 5pm onwards.
Update 4-30pm - all 20 Kg of Mackerel that we had in just a moment ago is now fully ordered.
* Orders for all fish for Wednesday onwards now being taken on 07977 689 689
Mousehole really is a fantastic place in which to live. Living by the harbour gives us marvellous views and the opportunity to watch all types of vessels that sail past.
