Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 13 March 2019

What? No fish?!


Wednesday's mid-week market in Newlyn sees the buyers gather around a couple of dozen boxes of fish from the netter Ocean Pride...


mindful of the fact that tomorrow and Friday will see the market devoid of landings...


with nothing to go down in the buyers' book...


and the minimum of work for the auctioneers...


as they sell the last of the boxes..


of black bream...


and ling


picked up by the buyers...


and taken for delivery...


while the fleet are all tied up...


the crew of the Penlee lifeboat will be heading off after their pagers went of at just gone 3am this morning - called to assist the French trawler, La Fanette which had broken down and her crew taken off by SAR helicopter from Newquay ten miles off Lands End.
