Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 13 November 2015

#FishyFriday feels the full force of Abi'gale'.


French trawler Cezembre briefly stops in Newlyn...



but was soon underway again...



just ahead of the beam trawler Algrie blown in through the gaps for weather...



almost in time to make a very quiet #FishyFriday market this morning



with more boxes of crab bait than anything else...



though these rare mackerel made good money...



as did the rest of the white fish...



like these colourful plaice...



all keeping the buyers busy...



catamaran workboats have made a huge difference to the working deck area in comparison to the overall length and size of vessels...



the MTS Valour being a good example...



the collective noun is possibly a bevvy of beamers...



to go or not to go...



today Tom watches over heavy seas in the Bay some 18 years after the Margaretha Maria  was lost with all hands south of the Lizard sometime between the 11th and 18th of November in 1997. RIP Vince, Robbie, Peter and Kerry.
