Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 16 September 2016

#FishyFriday finds Newlyn full of the finest and freshest fish.


One hour after high water...



two of the big boats are back in action again...



and landing on this morning's market...



giving the buyers a choice...



of the finest Newlyn harbour fish...



from boats like the Sapphire II...



landing spotty fish...



or lemons from inshores like the Harvest Reaper....



or these beasts of the deep from the Milennia...



good mackerel fishing with the punts...



and a hoard of hake from that star of the TV series, The Catch...



so are these spotted or blondes?...



knowing your fish marks, make haddock easy to identify...



two fabulous top-drawer flats, but which is which, the turbot and brill, or brill and turbot?..



time for the Sapphire II to take on board fuel...



most of the netters are in port this morning...



jog on...



just passing through, Windcat 4...



a little repair work looks like keeping all hands aboard the Imogen II busy on the quay today...



a weekly task, dropping the derrick to grease the blocks...



so where's The Catch?
