Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 7 February 2018

Mid-week fish market in Newlyn


Strong NE winds swept sleet across the quays this morning...


inside the fish market was a good deal warmer...


no rays of sunshine though, just these big blondes from a good shot landed by Plugger with the Shiralee...


while the Lamorna hit on a goof run of wreck pollack...


and at this time of year the fish ar beginning to be full of roe...


the beam trawler Resurgam was in the red...


while Edwin kept an eye on a handful of boxes of sardines form their main boat, Pelagic Marksman...


these 'feet' were made for walking, the underbelly of a small gurnard...


it's like this, says auctioneer Ian...


bass are best...


one to look up...


prime flatfish, but which one?..


just a smattering of cuttles this morning...


and, on a relatively fish-starved mid-week market, a few inshore Dovers made top dollar...


the snow it snoweth...


all be it briefly...


not the usual close encounter between two boats, but something in the sky over Newlyn this morning...


crabbers sometimes have to be innovative in order to carry the maximum number of post needed when they are to be deployed...


giving the beam trawls an airing aboard the Sa[pphire II...


could be slippery for an hour before the sun comes up...


as the heavy transport arrives from 'up country'...


in Penzance wet dock the Scilly supply boat's replacement, Mali Rose is still indisposed it seems...


while the Scillonian II is midway through her winter refit...


looking out across the bay to the Mount as a heavy snow shower passes overhead...


it won't be too long before the yachts are back floating again.
