Latest fishing news from the Ajax

Defra data

The most recent set of landing figures provided by the MMO have a whole 1 tonne of hake landed in Brixham from February to August this year. Which seems strange as the Newlyn netter Ajax alone has been landing regular quantities in excess of 1 tonne for much of the year? 

A simple explanation will hopefully be forthcoming - it could be that because the fish is landed in Newlyn and shipped by road to Brixham that for the purposes of the MMO the fish remains in Newlyn? Seems likely!
