Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 23 May 2018

Mid-week market in Newlyn.


Sara Shaun, waits for a buyer...


morning chaps!, it's 6am and the auction is about to begin...


and there are only a few boxes of some of the best fish around like these perfectly proportioned John Dory...


or these pristine inshore plaice... 


name the fish that this gaping mouth belongs to...


another box of snakes form the Don...


while at the back of the market there's good trip of megrims...


 from the Terevessa IV...
  

and in amongst the boxes of dogfish for bait...


the odd langoustine...


when it's time for the fsh to get dragged away...


like this bog monk tail...


the morning rays of light are superb at this time of year...


a different kind of ray to brighten the day...


name the fish that these almost butterfly-like tails belong to...


just the one big JD from the Millenia...


along with several boxes of big blondes...


while the WSS only manged a few red mullet...


and a good box of plus-fours...


and even a few boxes of langoustine...


to go with a box or three of witches...


and a few boxes of these, name that fish...


there weren't too many lone caught pollack from the small boats...


typical example of a day's work from an inshore trawler...


Fish keeping an eye on his fish as they are sold...


quiet enough in the harbour with most of the fleet away to sea...


so the local gull population...


are left scavenging for breakfast...


the Newlyn Archive is now open every day of the week...


the old Myghal,  now sold to the Shetlands and re-named, Faith Emily and her replacement, Emily-May...


progress on the Ocean Harvest...


the latest inshore trawler to join the fleet...


is pondered by two Newlyn boys...


lights are up the mast now...


and many of the finer painting jobs are now complete...


V.T.O.L. craft in action...


autographed by the creator in the Nederlands...


a rare sight these days in Newlyn - a mid-water trawl...


three historic structures in one pic - the the rear, the classic dome of the Lloyds Bank building, in front of that the old telephone exchange now the Exchange Gallery and in the foreground the St Piran...


a study in white, blue and red...


early morning misty Mount.
