Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 25 January 2017

Mid-week market full of fish.


First boat to be sold this Wednesday morning was the inshore trawler,  Harvest Reaper...


while megrim...


boxes stacked three high...


were side-by-side with plenty of monk tails...


and big flats came from the beam trawlers...


and a few hours old plaice from skipper Tom...


bolstering supplies of big white fish, the Karen of Ladram...


puts ashore a big shot of hake...


which kept the buyers busy checking the best prices they could get from their customers...


the yellow-welly gang...


the netters land stunning looking fish...


not least these cracking tub gurnards...


from the RFS member, Britannia V...


through a gap in the dark cloud...


the moon in waning crescent mode hangs high over the harbour...


with big trips from the two netters both ends of the market were home to their fish...


an early start for the super-crabber, Emma Louise landing her day's work...


with a fresh set of pots waiting to go to sea on the quay...


despite the stunning view this morning, Tom is thinking there is some wind on the way in the next 24 hours.
