Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 27 March 2019

Mid-week in Newlyn.




Spring is in the air and Summer won't be far behind...


as Andy Wheeler gives the Applied Zoology and Conservation course students from Cornwall College the benefit of his vast fishing knowledge...


though judging by the sideways look he doesn't seem to have convinced one of them...


signs of summer as the number of Jon Dory landed increases slowly...


along with a good mix of rays...


and this pristine brill from the Imogen III...


red mullet back on the menu...


grey gurnard...


and langoustine are a sure sign the WSS has been fishing north of the Scillys...


corroborated by the AIS trace from VesselTracker...


name these fish...


yet more John Dory...


on a full market, with most of the fish coming from the inshore fleet...


including this prime blackjack...


monk tail...


brill...


accompany this good shot of Dovers and lemon sole from the Imogen III...


it takes two to tango...


more quality flats from the Ocean Harvest...


ray carcasses are saved for use by the crabbing fleet for bait...


prime fish from the Lisa...


getting the once over from young Mr Stevens...


as the inshore trawler Shiralee heads for the market...


its says what it is on the box...


with such a busy market there are fish being held over...


for tomorrow's market...


it might be glorious sunshine but there's still a little nip in the air in the early hours as buyers consult their books...


late season cuttles...


just some of the fish now brought ashore under the new discard rule...


"step out of your boots"...


inshore boats like the Shiralee makes use of insulated tubs to carry slush ice...


Maverick, master of line-caught pollack fishing..


TO20, Rowse's latest crabber almost set for sea...


the sardine fleet at rest...


Ocean Harvest, typical of the inshore fleet of years ago...


new nets ready to go aboard...


new pots ready to go aboard...


as the Shiralee heads out to sea...


what's in a name...


it shouldn't be too long before the new lifeboat house is in working order...


classic Folkboat varnished mahogany hulled yacht for sale...


as the sun rises warm air...


meets a much colder land and sea mass causing localised fog...


greaser Steve keeps the Louisa N in safe working order...


just enough time to take a quick break from the mornings jobs and share a few minutes of banter.
