Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Tuesday, 5 May 2015

Tuesday's first market for the week and May


Pile 'em high! - plenty of fish flooded through the market this morning after the Bank Holiday weekend meant a build up in boats landing...


ling - the new cod for some chefs - see the Icelnadic chef Aggi Sverrison on BBC Saturday Kitchen for hugely protein rich recipe using Cornish ling from fisherman Johnny (must find out who that is!) and quinoa...


a busy harbour through the market door...


big run of hake form the Ajax this morning...


just in #ThroughtheGaps - the Lisa Jaqueline has work to do on the gear...


so the warp needs pulling off...


and the dripping cod-end needs pulling aft out of the way so that the bear can be stowed for landing...


some people are just plain happy...


while others roam the world in search of pastures anew - the aptly named yacht Nomad is a long way from home...


sterns don't come much bigger than these - typical of the most modern of steel stern trawlers...


three shining white knights of the fishing fleet...


names and numbers...


joining the other Scottish prawn trawlers, skipper Zander Jack Jnr's Nereus - she is the replacement for the Kairos which was brought to Newlyn as the replacement for the Ajax...


weather bound along with eh fishing fleet is the classic sailing ship Bessie Ellen...


and a Southampton registered inshore trawler...


heading for home.
