Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.




Fish Expo 2018




Wednesday, 18 April 2018

A different view of the new fish market in Newlyn.





The beam trawl boats like the Cornishman...


are still landing cuttlefish...


for a select bunch of buyers...


for the first time the new 'viewing room' enjoys a visit - though the windows might need a wipe at this time of year...


the new market features boot-scrubbers...


to keep the new floor clean...


though its non-slip surface is now giving the draggers a few headaches...


or aching arms, legs and backs...


not that that is stopping the market from shifting fine fish like these lemon soles...


in such pristine conditions...


monk tails...


red mullet...

plaice...


red gurnards...

ling...


the odd brill...


plenty of cuttles...


and a few boxers of whiting...


are as Edwin says, a sign from above that the summer is on its way...


though right now harbourmaster Rob Parsons has a few market jobs lined up for Lionel today...


after washing down...


work on the old section has seen the lod roof come off...


and the road made ready for passing traffic...


lifeboat cox, Patch attending to domestic chores aboard his charge...


as one of the Nowell fleet makes her way in...


Brixham beamer, Carhelmar is up on the slip...


in sight of the newest prawn trawler to join the Scottish fleet, Zander Jack's Ocean Vision.
