Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 17 May 2017

Mid-week market in Newlyn.


The legacy lives on...


changing times, there are more visitors landed on the market this morning than local boats...


with the Lisa putting ashore a few boxes of scampi tails as the smallest size of monk tails are known...


while the prawn boats piled their haddock high...


there are a few good lemons still around...


and plenty of big monk tails with the beamer...


haddock and more haddock...


and a few of Roger's JDs have been caught up in the big prawn nets...


along with some sizeable plaice...


the hands...


that do the bidding...


and buying...


or wait patiently for a bargain...


all, eventually go down in Ian's little blue book...


the biggest red mullet on the market this morning...


no match for the quantity of megrim soles put ashore of course...


and more tails...


and even a handful of big JDs with the Twilight's broken trip...


work still to be completed on the Sapphire II up on the slip...


one French and one American flag-flying yacht in this morning...


time to Rejoice, well time for a major paint-up for the scalloper...


and even on a boat with a big working deck the number of paint tins soon adds up...


while across the quay the boys, a long way from home, set to with the deck wash...


and brushes scrubbing down the boat.
