Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 10 February 2016

One boat on Wednesday.


Empty harbour boxes stacked high this morning with fish from...



the beam trawler Aaltje Adriaantje being the only fish on the market...



a few boxes of cod...



cuttles...



whiting...



and monk...


meant that Lionel was on wash down duties much sooner than usual...



not a single box for auction in the fridge this morning...



down the quay with the weather having abated for the time being the bigger boats are all set to sail today and straining at their moorings ready for the off - but there is a big ground sea still running which means that it won't take much of a breeze to make conditions unworkable for the smaller inshore boats even up to 10 or 12m in biggish tides...



if all goes to plan these big guys won't be back in port to land until the end of next week, if they get away today...



meanwhile, Capn'n "hail the hake" Phil has the Govenek up on the slip...



and it doesn't take much of a weather eye to see that those clouds are not bringing beach weather just yet form the West.
