Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Mid-week market


Just the one netter with a big trip of hake and a handful of inshore trawl fish landed this morning...



even the New Harmony...



only managed some slack boxes of monk tails, good size though...


meanwhile, in the battle for King of the Dorys, it looks like Nigel on the Innisfallen...


was pretty much level pegging with Roger on the Imogen III...


though his squid tally...


was definitely better than Roger's cuttlefish, sorry, Devon squid tally...


whereas Roger blew him out of the water on the bass challenge with these two beauties...


with prices sky-high, twas just the big buyers on the market this morning...


casting a careful eye on these big haddock, the result of the oversize mesh that the netters use these days mean they catch almost no juvenile fish whatsoever...


which means the buyers were fighting between themselves over the Charisma's big hake...


and then showing some love on the market this morning...


while outside, new made up pots and gear is about to come off the wagon...


and go aboard young James Roberts' new spruced-up command, the Three Jays...


while the moon has now passed the waning gibbous...


 and entered the third quarter...


the Stylissa has just come back from Holland after a major refit involving a new engine, gearbox, shaft and prop and a superb paint job from the Dutch yard in the same colours as the sea fan bearing the same name...


just in from a short trip, the Elisabeth Veronique...


stays all set and in place...


for the handrail on the bow of the port's newest sardine catcher...



which all but finished by close of play.
