Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 19 March 2018

Monday morning fish auction in Newlyn


Joy of Ladram riding high in Newlyn at high water...


with the town under a dusting of fresh snow this morning...


there were just two net boats that landed hake...


along with a mixed selection of flats like these Dover soles...


and whole monk form the visiting Scottish prawn trawler, Asteria...


she also landed this tidy run of cod from the banks west of the Scillys...


and a smattering of other fish like these John Dory...


megrim sole...


and haddock...


there were a good selection of monk tails too...


while the fridge held a few boxes of overnight herring...


Cornish sardines...


and a good run of mackerel from a few St Ives boats...


also in the fridge white fish and hake from the netter Britannia V that had just landed at first light...


with some of her fish going straight to the morning auction...


the rest were still being winched ashore...


and taken to the cold store...


still an unusual sight in the far south west...


electric up-and-over doors have now been fitted to the new market...


no sign of the sun today as the temperature drops below freezing...


though it's unlikely cold enough to see any icebergs...


on a calm morning like this...


the local gigs won't be moving out today for training...


nor will Fishing News nominee, Dennis Pascoe's Sprigs of Heather...


this guy is looking pretty glum too...


the only pair of legs currently walking on the pontoon...


undoubtedly in Cornwall...


looks like Butts won't be going anywhere today either...


despite the addition of this simple set of moveable steps to make getting on and off his boat much safer for him...


nor Mr Stevens who is no doubt still celebrating Ireland's dramatic final game to win this year's Six Nations...


most of the fleet are laying quietly in their berths...


no doubt the Red Lion will serve plenty of its famous crab soup today...



a sea of masts...


let's keep these scores as low as possible...


work still to do on the Billy Rowney.
