Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 1 September 2014

Misty Megrims on Monday morning


Heading for the gaps in Newlyn...


a couple of big beam trawler trips from the Billy Rowney...


 and the St Georges who put ashore a solid landing of megrim soles...


looks like it could be bass time again...


cracking hake from the Ajax...


keep the buyers busy...


there seems no end in sight of the big run of mackerel in the Bay, though a glut means that prices (25p / kilo) are so low they are the same as they were 30 years ago!...


Serene Dawn it is this morning...


landing a good shot of Cornish sardines...


straight into tubs full of slush ice...


these days the boats have tanks with iced sea water to keep the fish in top-top condition even though they are landed within hours of being caught...


two of the sardine boats against the fish quay...


must be the box washing end of the market...


and still they keep coming...


once again early joggers can enjoy the footpath on the seafront between Newlyn and Penzance.
