Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 4 December 2017

Super-Moonless Monday morning in Newlyn




The project to restore the Ocean Pride begins in earnest today when she is loaded on to a lorry to bring back to Newlyn for restoration...


meanwhile, the boat that also carries her name is set to go on the hard today...


loading Cornish Sardines...


a crowded market this morning...


with plenty of hake form the netter, Ajax...


some minus their dentures...


others proudly sporting them...


as the buyers get busy bidding...


with the hake yet to sell...


a box of squid from Falmouth way...


not quite up to the same quality as these pristine line caught squid form Mr Pascoe...


with the pressure on the quota easing at the end of the year  haddock is coming ashore in quantity...


for all the inshore trawlers...


like the Harvest Reaper...


and the beam trawler, Aaltje Adriaantje...


along with a few turbot...


and big tub gurnard...


and even a few eeels...


local hero, Nicky 'The Hoff' Cripps has a few words with his old fishing (not swimming) mentor...


quality with the inshores...


though just the one shade of grey, a box of black...


and a few quality brill...


and even more haddock...


along with a run of small John Dory...


and good sized rays from the Shiralee...


lucky for some...


the Imogen III managed to scrape up a few cuttles...


and some triffid-like looking squid...


Cod had a few pollack on the lures...


a sure sign the cuttle season is all but over, just the single tub for the beamer...


as the market floor begins to clear.
