Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 6 July 2015

Monday morning in Mont's Bay and Newlyn's busy fish market comes alive.


Newlyn at dawn, the kind of mood captured so often by artist and ex-fisherman Robert Jones...



the fish seasonal clock is ticking, it's John Dory time...


and who else but Mr Nowell is bang on time...


two beam trawlers and plenty of inshore fish this morning...


with the usual supply of big cod still around...


this one with a huge crystalised otolith which makes ageing the fish impossible...


the big red tub gurnards always look good...


over the spring tide the netting fleet are all in port...


down with the old, the ice works is going under the cosh...


transport links for fresh fish are second to none these days...


the Karen is up on the slip...


while the Emma Louise is now back in action shooting back new pots...


clean and tidy decks with the new fish handing gear keeping things fiddy...


running repairs on one of the trawls of the Crystal Sea II...


keep the mending needles busy... 



while the trawl full of dead fish attracts a crowd of gulls...


hell bent on getting an easy breakfast...


one of the smaller visiting scallopers...


hails from another Celtic nation...


two netters and a small inshore trawler.
