Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 29 January 2016

Freshly landed fish are rare enough on this freshy #FishyFriday!


Six am and a small huddle of buyers are all that is left on the market this morning...


desperately looking for some fish to buy...


from just a couple of inshore boats lucky enough to get out ...


and fish for a few pollack...


with not more than a dozen boxes in total fish will be at a premium come Monday's market...


as the weather is still poor enough to keep all but the biggest boats in port, though today will see the rest of the big netters head back out to sea at the start of this neap tide...


the Fish Box Club will no doubt be supplying a few lucky customers...


while the grading machine will lie be ready for action again come Sunday midnight when the first of next week's fish are landed...


the bigger boats in the port put out 'springs' - two opposing ropes rigged fore and aft of the boat that help minimise the movement of the boat against the quay...


won't be long before the Emma Louise is blazing a path out to sea again...



but for now the quay is quiet.
