Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 20 March 2019

As it's Spring Equinox today so Spring, is sprung.





Good to see technological developments in use on the market - here Gary collects size and species data electronically for Cefas...



as the morning's mackerel are sold...


after nearly two weeks of gales fish from the entire inshore fleet that mustered on Monday morning were up for auction including this nice shot of John Dory from the Still Waters... 


plaice...



red mullet, ling...


and brill from the Shiralee...


enough to make that happy man Colin from Mousehole Fish serenade the fish...


so fresh these cuttles are almost alive...


more brill from the Harvest Reaper...


perfect thornback...


and red mullet from Nigel's Ocean Harvest...


as usual there's a good shot of ray from the Shiralee...
 


and when the fish are this fresh these Dovers are undoubtedly Chelsea bound...


with finer weather the mackerel men have managed to get their feathers wet once again...


and a good selection of this fine fish were up for auction this morning...


along with these luscious lemons form the Ocean Harvest...


more than enough to keep the buyers busy...


not quite skrei cod but so fresh they will need eating in a day or two's time...


the inshore netter Tracey Claire's fish looks superb...


in a few weeks time there won't be many boxes of these up for auction as the main spawning season for big white fish passes...


the Govenek of Ladram's spurdogs made good money...


fine start to the day...


and an early start for anyone needing to put their boat on the hard, like the Ygraine now just beginning to dry pout as the tide rapidly drops...


big tides keep the netters in from sea...


so it's time for Richard and Fred not to get in a flap and over-end those gillnets...


into the tubs ready to be repaired...


a thousand pots getting ready to fish...


further along the promenade, work continues on installing a new section in the Jubilee Pool as work continues to install geothermically heated water for the coming season...


both the lighthouse...


and the Scillonian III have been freshly painted...


while the Scillys supply ship Gry Maritha is undergoing a refit in the Dry Dock...


much of Penzance's sheltered harbourfront is now dedicated to housing for the retired...


while the old Bramwell Mill building will soon emerge from its chrysalis-like scaffolding cover as a Premier Inn, nice one Lenny...


and early morning paddle boarder makes his way to the Mount in the mist.
