Fish galore on Monday morning's Newlyn fish market


 



 Time for some high water action in Newlyn...


as the biggest tide of the century, so far, hits town...


an Excellent  opportunity to see the fleet in port...


and check out the fish on England's biggest white fish fishing port...


starting with a few oily-fish classics like these herring...


looks like Trawler Wars is in town with a trip of fish from one of Brixham's top beam trawlers on the market...


matched against the mighty Sapphire's megrims...


Dover soles are paired white to white to protect their pristine white bellies while in the fishroom... 


seems happy to have landed in Newlyn...


along with a few smaller pals...


there are Dover soles, lemon soles and then these soles...


but which kind of soles are these?...


making tracks for the cuttles...


the sun is up early this morning...


while the beam trawlers ride high on the shore ropes...


one of the port's oldest residents...


tied up, that's the sardine season now closed until the summer...


the Angel in town...


with her bulbous bow on show...


the netters strain on their bow ropes as the tide reaches its zenith...


work on the next sardine boat for the port is coming along nicely...


straining at the leash, the IFCA's St Piran all set to police the local inshore waters...


while over on the canner's slip, Neil's new ship waits to take the bottom for some maintenance...


en passant...


looks quiet enough this morning...


plenty of work to be done on slipped the trawler Crystal Sea II...


the port is a sea of masts at high water...


while in Penzance Abbey Slip is covered by the high tide, nearly an hour after high water!
