Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 23 January 2015

Night time on Thursday - a trying time trying to get slipped.


A long day's work for some class Cornish mackerel...


while the port's biggest crabber...


prepares to leave her berth at the fish market...


and make her way to the slip...


which involves carefully lining the boat up with the cradle - away in the distance and only a few hundred metres form the beach one of the port's sardine netters is busy talking aboard a shot of fish...


looks like rain to the north west...


as the boat waits for the cradle to roll down the slip...


something that can't be hurried - in the end the exercise was abandoned...


back at the fish market more line caught mackerel arrives...


and one of the port's oldest full time fishermen...


makes his way up over the ladder...


and off to the fridge with his afternoon's work
