Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Tuesday, 17 March 2015

Summer must be just round the corner as we have Calypso time in Newlyn!


Another big Belgian beam trawler is in Newlyn...


from Zeebrugge...


the Calypso has arranged for transport...


and lands six boxes at a time...


while some of the crew mend the port side trawl...


the boxes are hauled intro the lorry


 with plenty of space for the big landing and will go back to the fish market at Ijmuiden to be auctioned,,,


meanwhile one of the local beam trawlers...


Lisa Jacqueline mends her gear...


back on the market there's just the one green...


and a solitary red...


as the buyers gather to bid on another 1000+ box market...


and the shout auction gets underway with auctioneer Ian giving fellow auctioneer Ryan something of a headache...


and the buyers turn to their phones for confirmation of prices...


some cracking red mullet...


soon get whisked away...


good to see Edwin from FalFish is just one of the Newlyn buyers happy with his #CatchOfTheDay .
