Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 12 October 2016

Mid week fish auction and harbour news


Some name their boat to reflect the mood of the sea, others after their children or evoke the presence of a higher being, others tell it as it is...


old nautical saying, "everything in its place and a place for everything" - the harbour's new rack storage system should keep things in order...


the chances of a heavy shower is never present this week...


WSS heads out through the gaps...


while Wednesday morning's market sees but a handful of boxes mostly from two inshore trawlers who braved a very fresh day...


given Lionel a chance to tell it as it is...


top quality ray...


mackerel...


and Roger's pet species, John Dory...


all put a smile on the buyer's faces...


before the auction was wrapped up by 6:45am...


the quay busy enough with several of the beam trawl fleet between trips or undergoing repairs...


Smart moves...


a string of pots ready fore the off...


on one of those mornings that will make most people reach for a brolly on the way out the dfoor...


as the lights of Newlyn give way to the morning sun.
