Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 26 March 2014

Spring is still coiled ready for action it seems as the sun hides away in Mount's Bay


The netting fleet have a few days of the neap tide left before one of the biggest tides of the year hits the coast...


less than sunny skies make for a foreboding look as the boats head out at first light...


with boats like the Ajax facing a long steam to the grounds...


on the market the fish are fast moving after each sale...


putting pressure on the collection of data for Cefas to be completed before the auction reaches the boat in question...


not so heavy megrim fishing at the moment...


but the lemons are best at this time of year with them at their meatiest in the body...


a set of open gills display the gill filaments fully red with the blood near the surface which allows for easy transfer of oxygen from the water...


beamer bass by the box...


and best tub gurnards all surely head for a top restaurant...


keep an eye on the auction in progress…


just a couple of trips from the net fleet including best Cornish hake...


and a big selection of roes...


early morning workout for some...


there is still good fishing to be had at the end of the cuttle season...


the harbour staff will be pleased when its over so the buildings can become sepia ink free...


tons of cuttles lined up and ready to go...


looks like the old lugger Children's Friend may get to be saved yet...

after this morning the tide takes a big jump each day.
