Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 3 April 2017

Monday morning in Newlyn


It's a trawl fish day today...



with the quality end of the market putting up a good show with fish like these red mullet...


giant monk tails...


Dover sole...


and some cracking gurnards...


along with some luscious ling - favoured by Cornwall's Michelin magician, @ChefNathanOutlaw...


pollack take pride of place from the hand liner Sea Spray...


while the AA landed some cracking cod...


beautiful brill...


and a bag or two of scallops...


along with a handful of bass...


there's no prizes for guessing which part of London these crackers are headed...


there were more scollies form the big beam trawler, Sapphire III...


and some big, meaty tub gurnards...



while Tom tipped up with some handsome haddock...


the Twilight III dug out some Dovers...


all of which kept the buyers busy until the end of the sale...


many hands make light work...


cuttlefish mean extra work for some as their ink gets everywhere...
 


out in the harbour both sides of the Mary Williams pier are devoid of any netters,...


a sure sign that it must be a neap tide...


fly past...


the Mission wind vane indicates that the wind is in the west...


the skies overhead busy with trans-Atlantic travellers...


hard to imagine that instead of road there was a beach was just a few feet in front of the old coastguard boathouse...


Harriet must be getting impatient...


all the heavy pieces of gantry are now in place on the Trevessa IV...


signs of summer, two big yachts en-passant...


anti-fouled and new anodes...


heavens above!, tiz a bright start to the day...


as the Scilly medic boat pays a visit for fuel.
