Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 17 October 2016

Monday morning's market in Newlyn.


High water on one of the biggest spring tides of the year sees the Excellent riding high...



not looking quite as tidy as she did here on her way to the Brest festival in 1992 with Mervyn Mountjoy at the helm...



a good mix of beam, trawl, handline and net fish on the market this morning...



including well over 120 boxes...



 of megrim soles form the Billy Rowney...



a few Dovers...



and even half a dozen boxes of John Dory...



along with a box of eight-leggers...



and a smattering of cuttles...



the tail of the beast-like thornback...



stepping out on stormy Monday...



hey Mr bass man...



nothing but the best...



like these MSC hake...



and a cracking box of bream...



fish like pollack have big mouths and huge gill plates to accommodate their big appetites...



the Emma Louise at rest...



under a full moon...



which almost floodlights the harbour...



as the Crystal Sea makes her way...



up the slip...



under the watchful eye of harbourmaster Rob Parsons snapping one for the port's Facebook page...



as the south west's biggest whitefish trawler...



makes it to the top of the slip.
