Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 3 August 2016

All in a day in Newlyn.


Keeping the ocean clean, another bag of sea litter from the Karen of Ladram...


both sets of beam trawls to be overhauled on the Sapphire II...


luckily, one of Newlyn's finest is on deck to assist...


that name is a blast from the past...


a busy time for the inshore boats...


just the two beam trawlers for this morning's market...


just enough to keep the buyers happy...


with limited supplies of Dover sole - especially given the number that are dumped at sea because of a lack of quota, yet they are more abundant than ever with Belgian beam trawlers filling their cod-ends......


much the same story with the haddock, all set to become the problem choke species when the LO comes into full force...


the mighty mackerel returns...


guess the fish?...


a 'dinner plate' turbot...


almost the end of the sale on Newlyn market...


skipper Don Liddicoat, the face of a man who has been there done that and has a draw load of t-shirts to prove it...


as he uses a spring to get the 200 ton Filadelfia away from the market quayside...


before heading back to a berth in what is a crowded harbour over the spring tide...


a chance for some  of the netters to get their annual visit over and done with for a coat of anti-fouling on the hull and new anodes...


there's a top coat of paint just gone on the Golden Harvest looks like a Through the Gaps scene on her stern...


with her new numbers...


and name she is all set for her first night on the sardines, maybe Friday if the weather holds good...


there's some powerful things going on on the Mount again with some Divine intervention possibly.
