Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 9 April 2014

Why is Wednesday not wet?


Signs of summer...



and an almost glass-like sea greet the Elisabeth Veronique as she heads off to sea...



in, landed and about to go away again...



Jeff of the Shiralee splices a new eye on a bridle...



as Mr Hosking prepares to leave...



plenty of white fish from 'up Channel' these days...



Nathan correctly identifies one of the rarer species landed on the market this morning - though mackerel have figured a little larger in the auctioneer's sales book for the first time in ages...



another batch of Tesco wet fish counter staff get the Newlyn Tour...



along with thier piscine maestro and former Newlyn fishermen Robe Kewn soaking up some early morning rays reminiscing over the ealry starts he made form the port many moons ago...



there's plenty of ling about today to keep the supermarkets like Tesco happy...



and some cracking examples of black bream for the more discerning palate - bake these beauties in wet sea salt for a fantastic fishy-feast with friends this Easter...



the pace of buying was brisk this morning...



hooked on fishing...



life and sole of the fish party, Lionel enjoys a moment of mirth...



watching the busiest man on the market inaction (sic)...



in flight...



a reflective of the Intuition nearing the end of her mammoth refit...



while along the seafront, boxed in by barricades, Tom peers over the safety fencing erected after winter waves wreaked havoc on the seafront between Newlyn and Marazion...



with little in the way of any work being carried out to repair the damage and a complete lack of any kind of indication from thew Council as to how and when the seafront will be once again fit for purpose and safe for locals and holidaymakers alike to walk the coastal path.
