Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 3 November 2014

Monday's missing one thing - much fish!


Wit a few days of decidedly inclement weather there was no trawl fish on the market in Newlyn this morning - with some boats overlanding their fish elsewhere...



a few boxes of netted monk from an inshore netter...



a solitary flat fish - but which one?...



plenty of mackerel coming in form the Bay...



though as ever things move at lightening speed of the market floor...



a fearsome sight the hake...



but no match for the boys of the netter Gary M...



or the Harvest Reaper...



on a very quiet harbour...



undergoing some underground pipework...



most of the mackerel me are out this morning - just a handful of punts now fish for winter mackerel in the Bay, a shadow of the heyday of mackerel fishing when boats from many ports as far away as Milford Haven and Weymouth would spend the winter months fishing from Newlyn during the late 1970s... 






not the sunniest of starts but the promise of more on the way...



contemporary works in the form of Newlyn Society of Artists critics choice ny Laura Gacoygne at the Penzance Gallery...



always worth a look.
