#FishyFriday in Newlyn



Black is the sardine boat Pelagic Marksman in the ice berth after a night's fishing in the Bay...


red are the mullet...


silver are the hake from Britannia IV's  overnight landing...


blue are the line caught mackerel from St Ives...


pristine white is the turbot...


silver and gold are the line caught bass and pollack...


some of Britannia Vs hake are over 6 kilos each...


as the swallows depart and head south so it seems do the John Dory as catches for the inshore boats begin to drop away...


there's no time chat as Edwin heads for the Falfish lorry with another pallet of fish...


while a handful of boxes of cod were landed on Newlyn...


over 9000, yes 9000 boxes of fish were landed on Peterhead this morning...



landings of squid are still well below what might be expected for this time of year...


the Karen of Ladram also put ashore a shot of hake...


maybe it would be easy to mistake a big blue shark swimming alongside you for something more dangerous...


after the auction it's time to sort the fish...


pull the boxes on to pallets...


and haul them away for processing and packing...


then it's time to tally the morning's bids...


another blossoming bromance or just an affectionate hug to celebrate those new oily leggings...


another day dawns...


while fishing for scallops is being argued over inLondon and Paris one of Newlyn's visiting scallopers has filled her boots or bags from local grounds...


the Gratitude finished bagging up her last haul in the harbour...


looks like Harveys are busy boiling crabs this morning...


as the demolition team looks to start another day...


PJ is a little more cheerful he doesn't have quite so far to carry his gear down to the boat...


as he passes all that is left of the old Penlee Lifeboat house...


though the view remains the same...


except it's not...


luxury charter yacht Big Eagle is all set to go in Penzance Dry Dock later today...


not many people know that you can enjoy a game of table tennis overlooking England's biggest fishing port!
