Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Tuesday, 18 November 2014

The new Ajax makes her first landing in Newlyn.


Tied up against the fish market in Newlyn for the first time with a trip of fish on board...


it's all smiles from Tom as the new net transporter...


fleets the net down in one of the stern net pounds a job that normally takes two of the crew to carry out...


waiting to land...


the fishroom on the new boat is huge compared to the old Ajax...


and the better refrigeration means the fish is held at less than +2˚C...


and makes life easier for the fishroom man...


in the mists of time...


the first boxes come ashore...


with half the trip going by road to be landed on the market at @bazilyo market...


view from the quay over the shelterdeck...


as more boxes come ashore...


co-owner James Pascoe gets to help out landing the boat's maiden trip...


from the depths of the fishroom...


even the ships Dr, Russell from Penwith Marine Services gets to lend a steadying hand...


so that skipper Alan gets the fish safely ashore for Wednesday's market.
