Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 25 April 2014

It's a misty morning on another #FishyFriday with foreign fish destined for foreign shores


Tom's view of the world is somewhat misty this morning...



with a still cold stream of air coming down from the North...



up at dawn, the inshore boat Serene Dawn takes on ice...



frequent visitor to the port, the classic West Country trading ketch, Irene ...



not one, or two or even three but four net drums fill the stern of the Boulogne registered trawler Saint Catherine Laboure...



as she lands to the back of a lorry on the end of the new quay...



the Padstow dredger Mannin has taken a berth in the old stone quay for the night...



on the market their are good quantities of high quality flats like these huge turbot...



and pristine brill...



not forgetting around 100 boxes of #Cornish hake from the Ajax...



and even a few cod still appearing on the grounds at the end of tyheir season...



the beamers touched on a good run of big flats to boost their earnings..



ice and fuel in one go...



the other French boat to land was the L'Arc en ciel (rainbow) though some younger readers might be more familiar with the Japanese band of the same name who have been around since 1991 ...



10 boxes at a time make landing quick work on the Saint Catherine Laboure...



though a little tricky for  the crew in the waiting artic trailer...



the L'Arc en ciel also works a mid-water trawl (on the net drum to the left) at times...



she sports an interesting piece of art work on her wheelhouse...



scaling the ice mountain so that Don has a fishroom full of the cold stuff for his next trip...



there's always work to do on the trawls...



latest addition to the Rowse fleet makes a good take-off point for a young gull...



the Bay looks like a scene from Jamaica Inn, mumble mumble mumble.
