Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 24 January 2018

Mid-week market in Newlyn


Black as the night sky outside, tons of cuttles once again fill the market floor from both the the beam, trawlers that landed this morning...


so the amount of whitefish was much less than normal...


with just a few boxes or even just fish of each species...


with Dovers being amongst the most plentiful...


before being pulled away quickly...


along with a handful of sardines...


some just need sorting...


while the bulk of the morning's landings...


need something bigger than a box hook to move them off the market floor...


getting ready to land alongside the market at high water...


the Karen of Ladram


surrounded by 400kg rubs cuttles


the buffs that mark the end of each tier of nets are stowed away aft ready for shootiung the gear back...


there's al;ways one willing to strike a nonchalant pose for the camera...


as the last of the KOL buffs are put away...


all part of providing, FISH FROM CORNWALL...


Emily, one of the passing scallopers in the harbour for weather...


along with a wind-farm service boat staying clear of the gale-force gusts that blasted the Cornsih coast throughout the night...


two of the big sardine boats wait for a break in the weather before they can fish again...


along with two of Rowse's crabbers...


later in the day, those intrepid skipper Alan with the Ajax and Sid with the Karen of Ladram...



steam quietly away from Newlyn - both hoping it will be a good deal more comfortable than it was steaming through the night to catch the market this morning!
