Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 8 May 2017

Monday morning market in Newlyn.


Patch and fellow crew members of the Penlee lifeboat had the peace and tranquillity of Sunday post-exercise shattered through shouts, not once, but twice - and both times for vessels with fouled props -in the case of the Our Roseanne the vessel has now tied up against the fish market to dry out at low water...


a mix of prawn, beam, day boat trawl and net fish on the market this morning...


with plenty of these guys to supply the best restaurants...


and a limited number of their flat cousins, the Dover sole...


as the fish move inshore the day boats always do well on ray at this time of year...


hours fresh tub gurnard, pure gold...


and John Dory of course...


a man and his measuring board...


summer bass time in Newlyn...


the hake are smiling...


and so are the crew of the Ajax...


as they put ashore 220 boxes of hake after just 16 hours fishing...


while the Stelissa targets turbot at this time of year...


with a handful of paws thrown in for good measure...


and the one big thornback...


a good shot of fish from the Ygraine...


kept the buyers busy bidding...


especially when it comes to the bigger butts...


bust start to the day for the Mousehole Fish crew...


including the co-driver waiting patiently to head to the shop...


with a name befitting that of a JRR Tolkien novel, the Mordross heads for the gaps...


while the Ajax tops up with ice...


the tide is slowly dropping...


high speed visitor, Cerys Line...


two of the Scottish prawn freezers...


ex-lifeboat, Sarah...


time to check over the trawls on the Vision III...


while the Revival takes on more boxes.
