A new chapter twenty years on from the loss of the Margaretha Maria


Ice on the way...



as the Trevessa IV waits for tide after landing during the night..



some of her catch included a good shot of ray...



and with the weather being fine, the bass boys have been at it again...



just a few of the biggest hake from the Karen of Ladram...



the handliners are still picking away at mackerel in the bay...



name these fish...



some of the best quality fish are orange but called red...



while others are totally brill...



just some of the inshore trawl fish of which there was plenty...



Dover soles' appearance often reflects the kind if seabed they inhabit the most...



those wry smiles tell all...



there's no plaice like fresh plaice...



a brace of mackerel...



a beast from the abyss, trying to escape...



last tally in the book goes for the haddock...



along with some beautifully spotted plaice...



blonde ray can be distinguished by virtue of the fact that their spots go right to the edge of their bodies and are generally slightly smaller than their spotted ray counterparts...



Tom's mighty megrim collection...



there's not much clear deck space when a beam trawler has boarded its gear...



a fair start to the day in Newlyn...



unusually, the Mary Williams pier is almost devoid of boats...



sardiner, Golden Harvest at rest...



visiting windfarm cat...



the firm down the quay...



plenty of work still to be completed on the new sardine boat, Vesta...



the Resurgam landed today...

Resurgan PZ1001
she is the first command of young Nathan Marshall as skipper, sadly, Nathan's father Vince, who would have been justifiably proud and four others were lost twenty years ago to the day when their beam trawler PZ1001, Margaretha Maria went down 45 miles south of the Lizard...



marking the occasion today underneath memorial Tom by Vince's favourite food, Kit-Kat and cheese & onion crisps...



a moody start to the day...



as light breaks over the Mount.
