Monday, 12 June 2017

Newlyn gets back to a working week after the gales.


Bideford powerhouse, Olivia Belle heading out through the gaps early on Monday morning...


closely followed by the handline...


and Dreckly Fish's inshore potter Guiding Star with young Francis Harris at the helm...


beam trawlers often suffer from the bends...


while the quay hosts yet another trawl being put together...


after several days of appalling summer weather the fish were quick to come off the market...


from just the one beam trawler...


the AA who had all her fish in the fridge...


turbot sometimes suffer bruising to the skin when fished in poor weather...


though the monk...


and red mullet...


were all looking bright...


and bright-eyed like these John Dory...


last minute landing of monk tails...


and turbot...


both fridges holding fish from over the weekend...


kept buyers busy inside and out on the market floor...


the ever-present blackback gulls keeping an eye open for something to scavenge...


the remaining prawn trawlers should all sail this morning...


at Wherrytown, the new Lidl's superstore is well underway, reportedly it will be one of the biggest in the UK.
