Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 22 July 2016

The freshest fish on a #FishyFriday morning from Newlyn.




Mr Mackerel, Dennis Pascoe lands his morning's work...


a little too late for this morning's landing board which dictates the order of sale...


the one and only brill, looking away...


a few less John Dory for Mr Nowell...


the AA has been north of the islands again by the looks of these little piscatorial pink pleasure prawns...


these are more commonly known by a pair of trousers, but which sort?...


there's a;ways one trying to escape...


these two will make a superb supper - no chance of confusing lobster (left) and crayfish (right)...


just the one shark, but which kind?...






Mark always likes to add a personal touch to his landings...


Spring tides see netters back in port and a number of visiting scallopers and trawlers...



like resident Shiralee...


no hanging around on the new sardine boat as the net pound in the stern is constructed...


to the highest standards its seems...


Lia M dive survey vessel hails form Liverpool...


just leaving you in no doubt who the Aurora's owner supports...


was a good year...


it won't be long before the Twilight III is back at sea again...


while the James RH has a few hours work ahead of the crew with both sides of gear to overhaul...


heading back in through the gaps...


as the Benediction heads out...


through the gaps...


side-by-side, two of the biggest sterns in the port...


a glimpse of basic trawl construction, the wire cored rubber disc footrope and combination (wire/fibre mix) make up the groundrope with the fishing line of the trawl attached or 'set' to it with twine, 7-8 heavier grade twine 'guard' meshes run the length of the footrope and afford greater resistance to chaffing on the sea bed before the lighter twine is used in the belly and wing meshes of the trawl...




 just astern of another visiting trawler, the Copious...


as the visiting scalloper,  Acquarius heads in to land...


its a wrap...


another Celtic cousin in port...


the Lia M survey boat...



it must be summer, the scallopers are here in force!
