Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Monday, 10 December 2018

Monday morning's fish market in Newlyn.


Despite poor weather for the end of the week there was plenty of fish on the market this morning...



which included plenty of hake...



and a good shot of beam trawl ray...



a few big turbot...



and a brace of late season John Dory...


best for bass at this time of year, and these beauties are still alive-alive-oh...



that's one serious looking tub gurnard...



beamers are back in the black...



and chasing a few lemons...



plaice...



bidding book at the ready, megrim...



and Dover soles...



good sized cuttles with the St Georges...



making for keen bidding from the buyers...



just one...



of the netter Ajax's hake trip, the penultimate trip before the Christmas break...



with the sardine season over for some it's time for the netter Ygraine to start her white fishing season again...


last minute deck jobs on the deck of the beam trawler Sapphire III...



the shelterdeck of the Galilee is still taking shape...



just into port and the Little Pearl makes another landing of Cornish sardines...



each tub taken immediately to the refrigerated transport...



after they have been brailed ashore...



this part of the fish market...



is like Picadilly Circus at rush hour...



as forklifts ply their trade to and fro...



the landing continues...



as the Sapphire III heads for the gaps...



the sardines keep coming...



the last of the netters fleet to sail like the Ocean Harvest take ice...



as the waiting transport are filled with fish...



dawn breaks in the Bay as others in the fleet set sail...


watched by the ever-watchful Tom...



behind whom, the Newlyn Art Gallery's cafe has one of the best views in town.
