Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 23 March 2016

Easter week is fish week.


Angling off the prom in full view of the handline fleet catching mackerel at first light...


one possible solution to the box issue on the market is for a box pool.....hmmm....


signs of more haddock on the grounds as the summer season advances...


with good landings from the inshore trawlers this morning...


like the Harvest Reaper...


name the fish...


it is not difficult to see the scale of the fish box problem #samethewholeworldover...


people have been whiting for a solution for years...


but there must be more than one way to skin a Dover...


not that you have to do that to lovely lemons, just trim the head, tail and fins, score, butter and grill, dark side up...


every scale intact on the Innisfallen's haddock...


the brill's big brother...


some are red and some are grey...


and some are green...


two big refits underway...


there's pure gold in them cuttles...


the man, the beard, the boat...


looks like the Stig's Celtic cousin just turned up for a test ride in Newlyn...


Juicy, aka Mr Pender enjoys the quickest of coffees before it is time to land the St Georges...


helped by Steve...


and the rest of the crew...


as young Mr Worth...


skillfully guides the boxes...


from the depths of the fishroom...


 skywards...


to the ever-cheerful Roger, ably assisted by someone who charges considerably less than George Clooney for his appearances on the big screen...


the Ajax passes up the hand;line fleet...


on the way in...


lining up the final concrete mixer run...


as the finishing touches are put to the historic Art Deco Jubilee Pool...


and the final part of the pool's bottom covered...


the Bonnie Grace in action.
