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.
