Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 31 January 2014

On the eve of Chinese New Year our #FishyFriday finds Newlyn full of fresh fish for feasting folk


The man at mission control, Lionel keeps the grading machine going full tilt grading fish from the netter Britannia...



while some of the catch gets sorted by hand...



when it comes to mackerel, they don't get much more fresh than this stiff little chap...



late season Cornish Sardines in ice...



there's a rush to buy fish this morning...



especially for these rather rare (this week) bass...



box hooks at the ready, the buyers concentrate hard as the sale get under way...



out in front of the market a stray fisher-merchant enjoys the view...



evidence Cornish Sardines have passes this way during the night...



over the weekend the tide will be one of the biggest for the year - 19 feet 9 inches - which is why all the ports will be on flood alert as winds are expected to hit 70mph plus over Saturday afternoon and evening.
