Edward Buckland and Rob North both made the long journey to Newlyn Harbour to jointly conduct the 2017 fish auction raising funds for the Fishermans Mission.
More fish was pledged than ever before and following the two hours of intense selling every fish found new homes and this year we were also joined by two fisherman from the Ajax.
In blistering August bank holiday heat purchasers we happy to take shelter inside the Newlyn Fish Market and compete for the fresh quality fish on offer comprising Cod, Haddock, Ajax Hake, Whiting, Ling, Mackerel, Pilchards, Pollack, Place, Dover Soles, Megrim Soles, Congar Eels and the list goes on.
Special thanks must go to Duncan and Sue Lucas of Passionate about Fish and the band of very willing helpers who created the very impressive fish display as kindly assisted during the auction.
Despite Duncan’s best efforts he was not able to trip Rob us with some fancy fish names and Robbie even managed to sell three sea urchin shells for a fiver!!
