Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 26 June 2017

Monday morning after the biggest tide of the year!


Almost all the fish was from beam trawlers on this morning's market...



with plenty of ice o the fish being the order of the day, a sight that will soon pass once the £1.3 million market refurbishment has taken place ...



and the entire market becomes what is effectively a giant walk-in fridge...



art is never far from fish in Newlyn...



blushed turbot, sounds so posh...



a Dory duo...



8-leggers aplenty...



mackerel are plentiful over in St Ives Bay...



but still scattered all over Mount's Bay and still proving hard to find for the local handliners...



though there are signs of a few bass at the Runnelstone...



tub gurnard belly-up...



turbot have a fine pair of lips...



beastly ray...



what about a scallop or two...



Newlyn fast fish...



waiting for water at the market...



seems the Algrie is flying some additional day signal - or is it just a clever ruse to rid the whaleback of seagulls - and the serious cleaning job that follows?..



a green-team boat...



plenty of painting work to be done on the Arkincastle...



red is the new blue in boat colours...



or white...



there is some serious net handling gear on the port's biggest purse seiner...



as the pelagic fleet wait for signs of sardine...



the business bit of scallop gear...



at least the worm fed on the harbour timbers and not the boats - not that there are too many wooden boats in the harbour these days...



most hulls, like the punt, Suzie are GRP or steel...



another passing yacht bound away...



Plymouth bretheren...



a fine morning with all the netters still in port over the big tide...



some serious square-format photography in the harbour this morning...



the finest fish restaurant in Newlyn...



the classic sailing boat, Provident at anchor off the Mount...



all set to sail to the Scillys...



the new and the old Scilly supply boats go stern-to-stern.
