Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 6 June 2018

Mid-week market in Newlyn


Graded and stacked on pallets...



plenty of  megrim soles this morning from the two beam trawlers Billy Rowney  and  Twilight III...


along with some specimen brill...


and radiant ray...


which kept the buyers busy phoning back to base with their purchases...


every plaice has a unique pattern of spots...


at this time of yer the be\am trawlers working off to the south always pick up a few boxes of red mullet...


while the inshore boats pick away at the bigger ray coming closer in onto the banks...


the bigger the ray, the bigger the wings...


just the odd bass this morning...


thought there were some good landings of Dovers...


though it seems the sizes proved a little more challenging...


so careful checks were made...


while Sid on the Karen of Ladram picked up a good shot of turbot...


the Radiance  will be sold tomorrow...


checking the Scorpio's haul of ray...


there was the odd shark on the market too...


while the work continues on the second phase behind a temporary insulted wall...


the last section of market roof insulation will be fitted today...


hopefully the new market roof will find a way of keeping these pesky birds from roosting overhead...


the yacht Apache sails out past the Sanamedio...


closely followed by that John Moore's of Mevagissey built classic netter, Britannia IV...


the name has appeared on Rowse's new crabber...


nudged against the quay by the workboat, Danmark...


the Troon registered scalloper Philomena which was towed in by the Penlee lifeboat yesterday after suffering a major gearbox breakdown...


which doesn't seem to have stopped the huge smiles on the faces of her crew...


nail-guns at the ready, removing rust on the Resurgam...


while fuel goes aboard the Twilight III...


souvenir from one of the port's regular Belgian beam trawler visitors, O33 Marbi...


good to see the Sapphire is all set to go back to sea again after her major winch repairs...


leading the charge home, the prawn trawler Ocean Vision heads for the gaps ahead of the netter, Ajax...



and it's all smiles from skipper Alistair after another successful trip... 




fishing over 80 miles west of Scilly on the North West banks.
