Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday's mix of the finest fresh fish in Cornwall


Summer time is Dory time...


and monk - best fish going for skewers on the BBQ...


these little beauties are rare as hen's teeth so far this summer, just as well the Cornish Sardine season is now underway...


gurnards are in top condition at this time of year...


view from the market...


on reflection...


eventually the services dispute will see the new ice works commissioned...


the latest addition to the 'blue top' fleet...


the Govenek of Ladram will need to come down from the slip tomorrow before she is 'be-neaped' - a term used to describe what happens when a boat is grounded or slipped during a big spring tide and cannot be re-floated at a later date as the maximum height of the tide drops each subsequent day until the next spring tide - sometimes more than two weeks!...


the harbour is still playing host to the tug and its barge...


34 dredges in total, the fishing power of England's biggest and most powerful scalloper, the Jacoba...


a 'clump' the weight needed to separate the two trawls used when twin-rigging...


noisy chap...


marine lines - classic boat straight stems compared to the steel yacht...


there's a few of these harmless jellies about - unlike the Lion's Mane jellies that can plagues the netting feel sometimes...


another classic hull, the sharp end of the Our Lizzie that graced this year's Sea, Salt and Sail festival in Mousehole...


time the blue stones were given a makeover Ben...


an old saying has it that there are many variations of the old saying, "three useless things to find on a fishing boat...." and a watering can is always one of them...


powerful hand steering on the Our Lizzie....


looks like the 'concretometer' is about to hit the top...


anchored in the channel waiting for Penzance wet dock to open...


no trade for the Dry Dock at present...


one mast needed...


Peace and War, an unusual combination of names together in the harbour.
