Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 13 September 2017

Mid-week market in Newlyn.




Today the latest superstore to hit Penzance opens its doors - with the promise that they will be selling MSC Certified fish - let's hope that includes hake from the Newlyn netters!...



with rubbish weather forecast for much of the week on the back of storm Aileen there's only a couple of beam trawler's fish on the market this morning...



and some fish are in short supply...



though the same can't be said for plaice...



as the buyers...



find they have stack after stack to buy...



unlike this solitary cod...



and a handful of mackerel...



these red mullet have been touched by that curse of the fishroom's life...



as there are now good signs that the cuttlefish have moved in on the grounds!..



the other cod...



there seem to be a few more lemons around than normal...



while it seems the little reds are never in short supply...



or the monk tails...



there's plenty of breeze blowing through the fish market building...,



as the forklifts fetch the boxes back to the factories...



the morning sky looks like the portent of a very changeable day ahead...



so the boys on the Twilight III will hope they don't have to don the oilskins every five minutes while they work on the deck going through the gear...



the boats are always their beast after a a paint-up...



there are still one or two yachts making passages, this one will be waiting for weather now before heading back to Ireland...



won't be long before little Suzie is back in the water.
