Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 11 August 2017

Thursday night into #FishyFriday morning


Looks like something of a story developing here...


as the second British registered Spaniard makes her way back to sea...



you can't miss her, under the light of a full moon and all lit up like a city, the tallship training ship Stavros S Niarchos drops her anchor in Gwavas Lake...


as the latest Cornish sardine boat, Pelagic Marksman lands twenty tons of superb sardines...


along with the Mayflower...


unloading her catch of the night...


a few hours later as the sun comes up...



and some of the boats make a start to their day...


with the promise of showers...


none of which will deter the old man of the sea


as Dennis makes his way out of the gaps on the good ship Sprigs of Heather...



the auction prepares for the morning sale with fish from the Spanish trawler, two beam trawlers a handful of inshore trawlers...


and the invisible netter, Joy of Ladram...


the Spaniard, Udra landed just 70 boxes out of 1700 including a few conger...



cod...
  

hake...


and ling...


which were all sold quickly before the buyers descended on the other end of the market...


to bid on some top quality flats from the Boy Lee...


while the Lisa Jacqueline's ray helped push her grossing to over £22,000 for her five nights at sea...


looks like Nigel and Phil are the Dory Queens this week much to young Roger's chagrin...


when they landed a good dozen of these delicious fish...


to be sold by Stevenson's auctioneer Ryan...


it's the monk what makes the money for the beam trawl fleet...


while none of the inshore trawlers are seeing good hauls of cephalapods...


they are all on the lookout for these little beauties...


yet another tallship, the Joanna Lucretia... 


you couldn't get two more contrasting sets of plumage than that of swans...


with the cygnets and their dull, bown fluff...


and mum resplendent in her pristine white plumage...


the big white cat heads up the visiting yachts on the pontoon berths...


while FalFish's new state-of-the-art Volvo tractor unit waits for Edwin to jump in the cab and make the long haul all the way to Redruth...



Tom's Harvest Reaper is one of the tidiest inshore trawlers in the fleet...


no wonder young David 'Dumps' Hichens is all smiles this morning, having recently returned to the Stevenson fold after over twenty years rolling around on the North Sea in oil supply ships he's just heard what his fish made and is off to pick up the settling sheet to saher up with the crew...


one of the UK's most modern tallships...


the brig Stavros S Niarchos is currently up for sale...


it would be great if she were to make it back for the August Bank holiday weekend and be anchored up in the Bay over when Penzance attempts to reclaim to world Pirates on the Prom record and to take visitors the next day during the Fish Festival...


now heading back to sea is the Guilvinec registred Itasca...


followed by the Dory queens Nigel and Phil aboard the Innisfallen...


hard to believe there are two yachts here, the black one is easy to spot of course...


this is what happens to gill nets when they are lost at sea, they get rolled up and are no longer capable of catching fish... 


work to replace the timber and tyre fenders continues.
