Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 9 December 2016

Stunning sunrise for another fantastic #FishyFriday in Newlyn.


Even the middle fridge was holding fish over night...


and the sorting, grading and boxing team...


under the supervision of chief fish market logistics, dispersement and quality control officer, Nicky Cripps...


who, along with his team started at 7pm in order to get the company's...


three beam trawlers sorted for the mornings #FishyFriday market...


so that these cracking lemons...


plaice...


Dover sole...


monk...


brill...


red mullet...


and gurnards were all sorted, graded and weighed on time...


there's two sides to every flatfish, but which fish is this?...


multicultural if nothing else is fishing - boxes from Ireland, Grimsby, Lorient in France,  Suttons of Cornwall (who ceased trading nearly 30 years ago), Peterhead, Pilot Star (decommissioned 22 years ago, Flying Fish form Looe, Denmark and a little bit of Sparkling Star from Bideford in Devon...



South facing Newlyn...


 provides the most spectacular sunrises at this time of year...


as the sun heads for the horizon...



and the boats in port due to sail take ice...


the Admiral Gordon takes on some spare gear...


while Rowse's latest new build takes another step closer to her first sailing day...


yellow is the new green, 50 brand spanking new tubs for cuttles and ice...


the harbour begins to flood with a golden glow...
 


in this panoramic-sized view (might take some time to load)...


as the sun just cracks the horizon away to the south...


the fuel lorries unship their loads...


as the sun creeps higher...


making the newly refitted Algrie look her best.
