Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Sunday, 13 December 2015

Sunday morning sardines!


Fifteen tons of the finest Cornish sardines aboard the Asthore waiting to go ashore...



as the netter Joy of Ladram leaves the fish market berth...


and makes her way to the gaps...


as #771NAS Rescue 193 passes overhead...



the Mayflower heads back to a berth...


so the net can be over-ended...


visiting Belgian beam trawler...


Marbi mends her gear...



and takes on boxes after landing, like many Dutch and Belgian boats her skipper and crew do not fish on Sundays......


one of Stevenson's beam trawlers has work to do on her port side gear...


it's all smiles aboard the Karen of Ladram as yet more gear comes ashore... 


as skipper Sid directs the traffic down the quay...


and the fish goes aboard the transport...


the crew make light of their work...


 as the Ivan Ellen heads out for a pre-Christmas Sunday exercise...



the Asthore begins to land her trip...


of sardines...


with tons of ice at the ready...


to keep the fish in tip-top condition...


in the insulated tubs...


a steady hand...


and timing too...


make sure the fish end up in the tubs...


all set for the transport to take them away.
