Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 26 February 2016

It's a fresh #FishyFriday in Newlyn!





One beam trawler and three of the inshore boats landed for this morning's ...


Newlyn's #FishyFriday market as it says on the box...



today is mainly top quality day-boat fish like these whiting...



lemon, uh plaice...



and lemon from the  from the Imogen III...



and a late addition to the board a few boxes from the Cornishman...



name this fish...



and this one...



at this time of year conger eels are full of roe or 'chittlins' as they are known locally...



pristine pollack from the Silvery Sea...



the cuttlefish season is drawing to a close...



while there are still signs of mackerel on the market most mornings...



more hake than you can shake a stick at...



yet another boat that wings their rays...



it's hard life...



as the latest successful bid goes down in the book...



a chill south easterly breeze is blowing hard through the market this morning...



the flagship of the fleet. the Cornishman... 



and the latest addition to the fleet, for the second time in its life, the Ygraine is back rigged for netting  again...



hung up to dry, cut lengths of polypropylene rope are woven in the meshes of the chafer on the cod ends of beam trawls to protect the underside of the cod end from chaffing out on the seabed...



two of the port's big netters at rest over the Spring tide...



the big beam trawlers at rest on the end of the quay...



the onshore SE breeze has whetted the Wherry Town Plaza skatepark this morning...



as the gulls wheel overhead looking for breakfast...



the prom gets a soaking...



as the sun struggles to rise above a cloud-laden horizon.
