Fasands of fish on Newlyn fish market!


Falfish's latest livery...


basks in the powerful stern lights of the French trawler Nominoe with one of her crew mending a footrope in the stern of the boat under her triple net drums - these French trawlers have the galley and other compartments offset to port and starboard so that the entire middle of the boat is open deck right up to the bow - this enables them to easily spread out their trawls should they need to mend them at sea - which is an everyday occurence for trawlers ...


taking ice...


several big trips of hake and white fish form the Ajax and Karen of Ladram on the market this morning...


all whisked away...


at speed by the shore hands...


some blue, some green for the cuttles...


even the bothicks get the data treatment...


there's a few small haddock about on the grounds...


and off in the deep water a bigger run for the netters...


and even bigger goggle-eyed ling keeping tabs...


almost a boxfull- but which big flat fish is this?...


could be a relic from times of old - a great eating fish and especially good as a centrepiece on the table served whole...


alien remains on the quay...


almost like Piccadilly in the rush hour with so much fish on the market...


greasing the hanging blocks and sheeves on the heads of the derrick...


as the Intuition makes her way...


past two of the biggest rear ends in the port.
