Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 3 April 2015

It is Good #FishyFriday! - but this was what happened in Newlyn on Thursday!


Just the one netter trip this morning...



from the GaryM...



Ed and his skipper looked well impressed with the prices on a shortmarket...



this turbot made around £15 a kilo



and the monk was a good price to for the guys on the boat...



auctioneer Ryan in full flow...



keeping the market buzzing...



the boat is all set to head back out to sea again having made the quick landing to take advantage of what has always been one of the strongest market days of the year - harking back to the day when most of the population would eat fish on Good Friday......



down the quay the netter Silver Dawn is changing over her gear - a mammoth task...



with the help of a strange character lurking on the quayside...



Tristan and the crew have rigged a temporary chute to get the nets into the lorry trailer...



one step closer for the new ring net bin...



fine weather and most of the fleet are back out to sea...



Rowse's new crabber is straining at her mooring ropes itching to get back in amongst the crabs - beginning to show her new colours...



Wincat 4 back in Newlyn again...



a pair of Scilly boys...



and a few other new faces in the port - time to work out which ports these guys are registered with?...



and this one?...



the Chris Tacha sporting her new colours on her port side...



one of the first of the new Shannon type...



state of the art lifeboats, the £2.4 million Derrick Bullivant is headed for Donegal, the first of the new class of boats for Ireland...



just the starboard side to do guys,maybe a little R&R job to keep Mario busy...



early season yacht in a berth...



and another Scilly boat...



the sea-going home of @CoastalK91, the Girl Pamela...



innovative mackerel stripper...



and the all-important MLS - minimum landing size gauge form IFCA...



a days gear to be shot from an inshore boat when the weather breaks



its light's out on some of the fleet as the sardine season is now over



looking good...



and ready for the journey back to the islands as soon as the weather allows...



things are a little more crowded aboard the Scilly trawler Sowenna...



the storm damaged replacement handrails on Newlyn Green are rather more contemporary...



than the ones on the prom - looks like they are cast aluminium?...



thought it maybe be some time before the prom is open to the public.
