Fish Expo 2018




Friday, 29 November 2013

#FF fill your fishy counters it's Fishy Friday!



Stack 'em high! big beam trawlers means big trips at this time of year if the boats get to put their full time in at sea...



landing a good selection of fish including these John Dorys... 


rosy red mullet...


and delish Dovers...



while the smaller inshore boys hit the market with top quality mackerel...


red mullet...




and big, black beautiful glistening blackjacks

catching this fish with bog boats means gear is replaced on a regular basis, like these two sets of warps ready to go aboard the Sapphire II...



while the fuel for a single trip on a boat this size would keep the average house warm for well over 10 years!!!


while down the new quay there's a new kid on the block, the Penzance registered Nicola May is the latest addition to the Cornish Sardine fleet - this one owned by Interfish of Plymouth and skippered by Mr TTP...


the boats' origins are given away by her huge flared bow, so typical of the French fleet of small inshore pelagic boats found up and down the western coastline fishing for sardines, herring and anchovy...


 the net transporter makes life much safer for the crew hauling in the ring net...



the waning moon sets over Newlyn harbour as the sun breaks over the Bay.
