Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 16 July 2018

Monday morning market in Newlyn.


Young Jeremy heads off to pick up a few pots on a fine morning...


as some serious metalwork is taking shape aboard the Resurgam...


though those heavy clouds overhead would suggest the odd shower may strike later...


not that they will stop the first auction for the week to get underway...


with some cracking top quality fish like these red mullet...


John Dory...


brill...


turbot...


and monk on the market...


and, at last, it would seem the mackerel have finally deigned to put in an appearnce in some number...


judging by the multiple box landings from the punts who fish for them...


the beam trawler put ashore the biggest haul of greater weavers seen for some time - anyone would think big Don was towing up and down Sennen beach!..


young Roger Nowell must have touched a little hard patch if these little blues are anything to go by...


all duly noted in Edwin's little black market book...


along with Dovers and their recalcitrant apostrophe...


Mr Smith landed plenty of pollack and blackjacks...


while the punt Tillerman broke all personal bests with his shot of mackerel...


and the Pascoe clan covering three generations weighed in with some fine landings of bass and mackerel...


the beam trawlers keep the crab boats in bait...


the it is fish like these Dovers that make up the high value of their landings...


although Plugger on the Shiralee picked up the top prize in the World Cup football sweepstake...


each one of these beauties is worth over £20...


which is why some 20 boxes of John Dory will have given young Roger and his crew on the Imogen III a good week's wages...


fishing knows no borders...


on the lookout for breakfast...


in a day or two the spring tide will give way to the next neap and allow the netters to get back to sea again...


Phase II of the market refurb is well underway...


with most of the insulated panels now fitted and the chill units installed overhead...


the view down the length of the grading machine.
