Fish Display

Every year a stunning fish display, created by Sue and Duncan Lucas of Passionate About Fish, is the centrepiece of the Fish Market and a showcase for the vast array of species which are landed in Newlyn.

Many thanks to all the Newlyn Fishermen who donate the fish for the display and auction.

By kind permission of Newlyn Pier and Harbour Commissioners The Fish market usually plays host to all things fishy at the festival.  Due to an anticipated harbour redevelopment plan it is likey that only half the fish market building will be available to us this year which will host the fish cooking stage and the famous Passionate About Fish, fish display.
