Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 10 December 2014

Not much fishing today - though there are still a few boats at sea, some looking to land for tomorrow's market


Things were a tad blurry first thing this morning...



but it appears that the Wayfinder is about to be cut up today after being moved up ahead to dry out on the hard...



three beam trawlers landed part trips today...



with some big plaice form the Billy...



and Dovers...



small fish, big mouth on the whiting...



these mackerel go head-to-tail...



plenty of cuttles to make up the beamer trips...



Edwin doesn't look too sure which auction to bid on - one day when the auction is computerised things will be easier for the buyers...



it's back-breaking work...



on the market so sharing the load is a good idea...



name this  tasty little chap, there's an equine connection...



blown in from the sea...



most of the boats are tied up...



for weather over the next few days...



so its a case of getting plugged in to the new electrics down the quay...



and enjoy a few Christmas lights on show...



sister ships together, a few words of advice no doubt from the old hand Asthore to her new partner Mayflower...



with most of the fleet in Newlyn...



the port is lit up like a small town in the early hours.
