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.
