Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday morning market in Newlyn


It's not often that Newlyn plays host to two Admirals...


on a morning market with around 500 boxes of hake...


which kept auctioneer Ian on his toes as buyers battled over the best bids...


and then moved on to more prime fish like John Dory...


and Dover sole from the St Georges...


a good run of plaice...


and some decent sized monk tails to compliment the boat's trip of cuttles...


all whisked off the market floor PDQ...


the netter Ajax...


and the Britannia V filled half the market...


the 350 boxes from skipper Dwan all set for delivery...


while in the fridge a handful of late season sardines...


and a few dozen boxes of mackerel from the handliners of St Ives...


methinks market manager Mr Cripps will be glad to see the back of the black fish for which Newlyn is renowned......


insulated tubs all set for the next sardine season...


where all old yellow-wellies go eventually...


the  huge flared bow of the Galilee is more evident now, especially alongside a Cygnus 44...


Ben Loyal up on the slip...


it seems there are some issues with the starboard side gear on the Trevessa IV...


time for a lick of paint on the old pilot house...


local artist Robert Jones has some of his work in one of Newlyn's gallery shops...


which has a divers collection of fishing art and craft work...


for their coming show.
