Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 27 February 2019

Misty mid-week market in Newlyn.


Cloudless skies all night saw the temperature barely above freezing as a mist greeted Newlyn this morning...



first big netter to land this neap tide after fishing south of the Lizard was the Karen of Ladram...


while the much smaller Girl Pamela weighed in with plenty of pollack...


a few bream...


and healthy looking ling...


a brace of Dovers...


and a fine looking turbot...


both types of spotted dogfish...


were on display...


along with good shots of ray from all the inshore trawlers...


coley have the kind of colourful skin just crying out to be cured...


as do John Dory...


Dover sole still feature in every inshore trawler's landings...


while the middle fridge had good supplies of mackerel from the handliners working in St Ives Bay...


making a late landing...


of sardines...



which are held in iced seawater aboard the boat as soon as they are caught and iced yet again when they are transferred to the 400kg insulated tubs for transport...


apart from one boat laid up and the James RH deck lights blazing and about to sail, the harbour is empty this morning...


as a mist rolls towards the sea from Newlyn Combe...


and out to sea...


all set to sail...


as the rising sun...


spreads a warm glow over the bay.
