Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 7 October 2016

The first #FishyFriday of October means it's the start of @seafoodweek!


There's no floundering about at the start of #SeaFoodWeek in Newlyn with top quality fish from two of the port's finest beam trawlers...


in Newlyn with top quality fish from two of the port's finest beam trawlers...


being sold by Mr Auction himself, Ian Oliver...


like these lovely lemons..


and monks from the Sapphire II who makes a habit of landing the very best fish...


while there are plenty of inshore wings to bring a little ray of sunshine to the port...


to cheers the soles of all concerned on this #fishpunday...


speaking of witch...


these eight-legged beasts make great eating in fish stews...


or you could shell out a few extra pennies for some succulent southwest scallops...


or see if your fishmonger can supply you with some Cornish MSC Certified hake...


 from the Joy of Ladram , sister ship to the star of the Catch TV series Govenek of Ladram...


this fish always takes top plaice in any #fishpunday competition...


unlike the mackerel who proved popular with the handline boats yesterday...


outside the harbour was being treated to yet another stunning dawn spectacular...


as the sun began to throw light on the low cloud cover...


Nigel appeared to be fighting a losing battle with the ice-tube...


as he took ice on the Innisfallen...


laying to the market, one of the port's biggest beam trawlers, the St Georges was waiting for the arrival of skipper and crew...


while the Sapphire II prepared to take on fuel...


hopefully the Ivan Ellen will remain in her berth for a good while yet...


as the solitary figure of a crew member heads for his boat...


function over form for this fully sheltered crabber...


the William Samson Stevenson basks in the morning glow...


which extends right across the harbour...


and over the bay to the Mount...


ice taken, time for the last smoko before...


 its time for Nigel to set sail...


and the Sapphire II completes her fuel stop...


even the gulls seem to enjoy mornings like these...


along with a brace of photographers who made the effort to be down the quays before the sun came up...


to capture the warming light...


that floods the harbour...


some things come in threes...


heading for a quay berth.
