Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 18 April 2016

Newlyn on Monday morning


Mount's Bay before the sun puts in an appearance...



crisp and clear...


and the market has landings from just the one big beam trawler, one of the summer prawn season trawlers from north of the border, a handful of the port's inshore trawlers and several of the port's big netters...


monk tails are big on the market this morning...


along with some pristine ray...


and turbot...


standing head and shoulders above the rest for quality...


these John Dory have been landed ungutted by the visiting Scottish trawler, a common practice for fish like bass and mullet...



 though unusually, the monk were tailed...



and with the prawn boats working on the Northwest Bank means megrims are always going to be on the menu...



and the boat picked up a few hake along the way...


the Ocean Pride has sought out a few wrecks to add to the big whitefish landing...


of pollack and ling...


but these are the fish along with the monk that make the most money...


and keep those keen, lean hungry looks on the faces of the buyers bidding for their fish...


with the boxes stacked five high for much of the market...


with nearly one hundred boxes of MSC Certified hake from the Britannia V...


lemons from the inshore trawler, Innisfallen, always best cooked on the bone...


Tom Eggins, who owned the Heather Armorel was not so fond of water,  he said, "water is OK, taken in the right spirit"...


brand, shiny new warp waiting on the quay for the arrival of the port's latest addition to the fleet...


as she makes her way to Newlyn...


along with a set pair of pair trawls...


all set for a week on the Scillys...


looks like Tom is the only inshore trawler left in the harbour this morning, the other headed out through the gaps around 5am...


looks like there is some cutting in to do aboard the St Georges...


Keel Alley used to be a beach, until it was filled in and grassed over...


one luxury yacht back in the drydock...


as the sun breaks out over Penzance Dock...


on a breathless morning...


much of the yacht is aluminium.
