Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 24 July 2015

It is pouring down - but luckily it's #FishyFriday!



Rain lashes the market and streams down the plastic door hangings in a less-than summery shower...


while inside it's a full-house of fantastic fresh fish...


like monk tails from the AA...


a solitary big conger...


some stunning inshore red mullet form the Bonnie...


and  a few boxes of big blondes and thornback ray...


 not forgetting Newlyn's quality...


 MSC certified Cornish Hake...


landed by the Britannia V, Charisma and Karen of Ladram...


to fill the western end of the market...




with around a dozen scallopers currently working form the port...


berths on the marina pontoons are now at a premium...


as the boats vie for a place to tie up for the night...


which puts even more pressure on the limited number of leisure berths available...


the Spirited Lady flies her colours on her mast, a true Celt...


while through a sea of masts and rigging...


ther Scilly lifeboat Whitehills can be spotted in berth...


along with a couple of workboats...


closer view of the working deck of a modern inshore scalloper from Brixham...


there's a whole new vista in Newlyn...


as the old iceworks has new been reduced to a pile of concrete rubble...


two links in the higher end of the food chain...


with two classic old ladies at rest in the harbour taking shelter from an overnight blow...


as Newlyn's latest sardine boat is on the slip to have her bow thruster fitted.
